Hypertension (Definition)

If I take coricidin cough and cold and I don't have high blood pressure,  will it effect me adversely (I'm taking it for the right reason, I'm sick)?

Safe medication: For a young healthy person a short course of over the counter medication is unlikely to be harmful. The other side of that, though, is that most OTC meds aren't very effective. For a serious cough a prescription medication might be best, but if the cough is minor you're better off to try home remedies.

The only way to prove if it's due to vasotec (enalapril) is to stop it, wait til the cough subsides, and then restart vasotec (enalapril). If the cough comes right back, you know for sure. If the cough is due to vasotec (enalapril), it will never stop till you stop vasotec (enalapril). ...Read more

Im on Zoloft100mg Ativan (lorazepam) 2mg mecardis  80 mg for high blood pressure i took risperdal .05 mg after 15dys may but my pressure drop is that  temporary ?

Risperdal 0.5 mg: Risperdal can cause a marked drop in BP and it may not be temporary . However, don't "treat a number", treat the person. In other words, don't be alarmed by a BP that is much lower than you're used to seeing if you're otherwise feeling ok (not dizzy or passing out). Stop the Micardis (telmisartan) if your BP is too low. ...Read more
