Avoid decongestants. Primarily, you should avoid decongestants. Antihistamines such as zyrtec, claritin, (loratadine) and Allegra should be fine. Just avoid -d products.
Many options. Individuals with high blood pressure should avoid certain allergy medications containing pseudophedrine or other "decongestants" as this will raise blood pressure. Plain claritin, allegra, zyrtec, and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) do not contain a decongestant and are thus safe to take with high blood pressure.
Antihistamine. Depends on what medications you're taking. Most over-the-counter antihistamines would not pose a significant problem as long as the do not contain decongestant. Cannot comment on specific interactions without knowing what medications you're taking.
What is the best OTC allergy medicine I can take? I have high blood pressure. I'm on bystolic, (nebivolol) synthroid, and omeorazole.
Avoid Decongestant. If one has high blood pressure then avoidance of decongestant allergy medications is most prudent.
I am on high blood pressure high colistrol, rls, allergy medicine but stil have calf and thigh pain at night. Can you help?
See PCP. Based on your age and the medical information you provided I am suspecting few things including peripheral neuropathy and restless leg. You need complete evaluation including physical examination and lab works. Talk to your PCP.
OTC nasal steroid. Since antihistamine alone dose not reduce nasal congestion, your best bet would be the newly available nasal steroid. Daily nasal saline irrigation may help.
I take Losartan for high blood pressure. I developed allergies, and I need to know what allegy D medications won't interact with Losartan?
Better off w/o "D" It's not the interaction. Decongestants elevate blood pressure; that's the problem. If itching, sneezing, runny nose, just use antihistamine +/- a steroid nose spray; you don't need "D". Clogged up? Pseudoephredrine is worse than phenylephrine, and 12 or 24 hr preps are worse than little 30 mg red tabs. Check with your internist/cards; they may OK just a little bit here and there.
Alternative... Any of the "D" decongestants will serve to raise your blood pressure, but should not interact directly with the Losartan. Although these are effective for short term as needed use, there are safer options for environmental allergies other than decongestants. I recommend consultation with an Allergist to determine specifics of the allergy that will guide avoidance strategy and treatment.
Both of my eyeballs feel swollen. I do have allergies but take medication for that. I also have Chiari Malformation and High blood pressure. My eyes h?
See eye doctor. Eye balls don't usually swell up especially without itching from allergies. You need to consult an eye doctor to make sure there is nothing serious which may cause eyesight impairment.
