Can you take Zyrtec (cetirizine) with blood pressure medicine? Thank you! Will the Zyrtec (cetirizine) help with my cough?
Zyrtec (cetirizine): May or may not help with cough. You haven't mentioned which blood pressure you're on? Generally speaking it won't interact with it, but mind you, some blood pressure medications would cause cough!! Good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, better see your doctor for evaluation, best wishes Read more
No, But Don't Do It: Zyrtec (cetirizine) is an antihistamine- so you shouldn't be taking it with other antihistamines. However, antihistamines don't typically elevate the blood pressure. Decongestants (ie sudafed) can cause blood pressure elevation. Zyrtec (cetirizine) shouldn't be a problem. Read more

Can I take cetirizine while I am on irbesartan? I have slightly high blood pressure but is now managed.
My blood pressure was up when I took cetirizine and I have irregular heartbeat. I am on irbesartan for high bp. Will this go away?
If cetirizine is: The problem then its mild-anticholinergic effect on the heart should subside in about 24 hrs even though its antihistaminic effect may linger for up to 72 hrs. However, it is unusual to see elevated BP from this drug and you may need to see your doctor about this issue. Read more

It will normalize: But if it remains high or irregular heart beat continues better see your doctor for an ECG, at times blood pressure goes up for several reasons the least of which is physical activity or even any nervous excitement, calm down and relax before you get your blood pressure measured, good luck Read more
Yes it can: Weight gain can absolutely increaase your blood pressure. I recommend regular exercise (which can decrease your blood pressure even when you don't loose weight), and a healthy diet.

How high should your blood pressure raise after exercise-in terms of systolic and diastolic values? E.g is 127/74 before and 150/101 a normal increase after walking up and down a 16 inch step?
BP and excercise: It is normal for your blood pressure to increase during and right after exercising. If that is the reading about 20 minutes after resting, you should be concerned. Check with a local physician if that is the case. Otherwise, you should keep doing what you do. Exercise and eat healthy. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
