Is there any way to get rid of swallowing problems and dry mouth ?

So I ended up in the ER last night (symptoms started about 22 hours ago, I went in about 19 hours ago) as I started having what turned out to be an allergic reaction. I was taking a bunch of different medicines for cold such as Robitussin and Advil Cold Sinus (not overlaping much, though) and started having trouble swallowing mechanically, though I could swallow food and water. I also started developing dry mouth. It caused me to have a mild panic attack. I also developed a rash on my shoulders neck and face. They put me on steroids and Benedryl and discharged me a few hours later. The problem I am having is that I still am having trouble swallowing and have dry mouth, and it's scary as I keep worrying it will get worse and my throat will close up. The doctors at the ER didn't seem very concerned, but is there a way to make the swallowing problems and dry mouth go away? I keep panicking and really want to get some sleep.

This is due to allergic reaction due to which there is swelling in the throat and it should be treated urgently. You should discontinue the medications and take antiallergics only. Take medical help as early as possible.
