Can I take sudafed pe if im a diabetic?

Can I take sudafed pe if im a diabetic?

Maybe: I try to avoid recommending sudafed to people who have high blood pressure. People with diabetes also would be better to avoid it. But if it is once in a while and taking safer measures such as nasal saline, nasal steroid fail to relief nasal congestion then I would say it is not a big issue to take a few of them.

Is it ok for my pregnant wife to take sudafed for a cold?

Category c medicatio: Sudafed is a pregnancy category c medication which means that this medication may not be safe in pregnancy, although the full risks are not known. For nasal congestion in pregnancy, I recommend rhinocort aq and singulair, (montelukast) which are both pregnancy category b medications available by prescription. For over the counter medications, ask the pharmacist for the pregnancy category a or b. Try sinus wash.

Use them wisely: Sudafed is a brand name of pseudoephedrine, a decongestant used to decrease nasal congestion and secretions. Claritin is a brand name for loratadine, an antihistaminic.

Long-term continuous use of decongestant result in some cases with loss of effect.
