High Blood Pressure
Cold and Flu Medicine - Remedy Coricidin
December 24th 2005
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.
