Do some OTC meds cause pulmonary edema if you take too big of a dose?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: In theory sure...

There are so many otc meds it's hard to narrow it down.
But i can imagine a scenario if you have high blood pressure and take pseudo Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) otc , your blood pressure could go high, enough to cause pulmonary edema.
