High Blood Pressure Cold and Flu Medicine - Remedy Coricidin

December 24th 2005

High Blood Pressure Cold and Flu Medicine - Remedy Coricidin


If you have high blood pressure you understand the problem of finding something to treat a cold or flu.  There are warnings on decongestants against taking the product if you have high blood pressure. 

Recently I have seen ads on TV for a new medicine for treating a cold.  In fact the ad says Coricidin is especially helpful for those with high blood pressure.  Many other medicines have the decongestant mixed with expectorant and cough suppressant and or antihistamine. 

Coricidin is supposed to be safe for those with high blood pressure.  It is a good idea to check with your doctor before you take any new medication.  According to the Atlanticville website out of New Jersey, “side effects may include nausea, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness and death”. But to be fair even the prescribed blood pressure medicine to lower blood pressure in the first place can raise potassium levels causing heart arrhythmia.   We will be writing an article about this in the future.


You do not need a prescription for Coricidin.  It is sold over the counter (OTC).  Most of the articles you read will deal with teen abuse of Coricidin.  There are also warnings on the package concerning alcohol consumption.  Don’t take it if you have had more than three drinks according to the Drugs.com website. 

Also, don’t take it if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.  It can cause drowsiness, so you may not want to drive a vehicle after taking the drug.  There are a couple types of the drug.  One is a non-drowsy liquid-Gel that treats chest congestion and cough.  The other is a cough suppressant and antihistamine.  The company also offers a Cold medicine with pain reliever.
