Brief Answer:
Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

The possible causes of throat clearing are post nasal drip, GERD with LPR and habitual.

I presume the ENT doctor has examined and ruled out post nasal drip.
Habitual is unlikely as you have mentioned it is present only for the past 3 weeks.

As your doctor said LPR is likely.
You can take the following medications.

1. C.Iladac-L 1-0-0 before food for 4 weeks
2. Mucaine 10 ml- 10 ml- 10 ml

I hope that answers your query.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
