User :   I have problem with continuous sneezing over last two-three years, I had consulted several doctors, all said there is no problem.

User :   almost every time after I get-up
Doctor :   Do you have any other symptom associated with it ?
User :   running nose (only left One)
Doctor :   do you have nasal blockades often ?
User :   running nose starts first and then sneezings
Doctor :   ok, Have you noticed the same when you had slept in place other than the regular ?

User :   these didnt solve my problem at all
Doctor :   are you using them in the nasal spray form ?
User :   no sir
User :   tablets onlyt
Doctor :   i would advice you to use Azelastin nasal spray every early morning and a tab of Loratidine 10 mg every night after food for at least a week
Doctor :   nasal spar do give faster relief and make the nasal mucosa resistant to allergens
Doctor :   and in severe cases steroid nasal drops may be required
Doctor :   its like a chain reaction one sneez triggers the other
Doctor :   hence if you stop the first one by the spray then you will have a symptom free day
User :   yes, one sneez triggering 5-6 sneezes
