I have high blood pressure and currently on meds for it. I want to know what I can take for my nasal congestion? Since the decongestion can raise bp?

In brief: Rx nasal sprays
There are two types of rx sprays you can take.
Both have very little systemic side effects. Nasal steroids sprays (flonase, rhinocourt, nasonex, (mometasone) veramyst) and also anti-histamine sprays (patanase, astepro, etc) ask your primary md, allergist, or ENT which is best for you. But do you need an rx for them.

Talk to pharmacist to find medication without a decongestant maybe only anti-histamine.
