Common Questions and Answers about Guaifenesin and blood pressure

I have had the coughing problem for years, but the mucous problem began after I had pneumonia a few years ago...
I then went to a more progressive ENT in 2005 who did an ethmoidectomy (removed the sinuses from between my eyes)and I really thought my problems were over. My pain and pressure were completely gone and I felt great. Until.....the beginning of the year I started having sinus infection problems with dizzyness and feeling totally lousey. A week and a half ago I was on my 3rd sinus infection when I finally went to a friend who is a Nurse Practitioner and had her culture my sinuses.
I am on Cardizem CD(360mg/day) to prevent afib(no high blood pressure problem). For 2 years I have had a problem with one inner ear not draining properly due to colds/sinus stopping up the eustacion(sp?) tube. What cold/sinus medicines can I safely take that might clear this problem? Ear doctor has tried guaifenesin(1200mg/12hrs)and Nasonex spray but these have not worked. The only thing that works is putting a vent tube in eardrum- I've had 3 of these. Help!
) My blood calcium is under a separate investigation. It has been in between 10.2-10.5 for nearly a year now. Only slightly above normal but consistent. My parathyroid was suspected to be abnormal. Parathyroid levels are normal but higher than what they should be with high calcium levels. They did a sesstambi (sp?) scan of the parathyroid last month and found a tumor smaller than a grain of rice.
I can't take pseudoephedrine because of my blood pressure, and my doc told me to stop taking Benadryl because it dried out my sinuses too much and that can cause infections. But since the ENT said this might be allergies I took a Benadryl last night and I swear it made me feel better. Between that and the humidifier in the bedroom I'm already starting to improve. It's kind of irritating that it took 3 doctors to even suggest allergies but better late than never I guess.
The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
I recently had a physical exam my cholesterol is 131, HDL 47, LDL 73, Triglycerides 94, VLDL 19, blood pressure 69 over 120. When I was young I road my bicycle 30+ mile every day. I had not ridden a bike in 30 years I just started riding a bike again and been riding 20 miles every day for 6 months it makes my legs hurt less. I am retired at 57 my legs hurt all the time and worse at night. When I was young my legs only hurt when I sat in a chair or needed to use the restroom.
I actually considered going to the hospital because I couldn't keep my medication down, or get a blood pressure reading. (I resigned to the bucket in bed approach again, which I absolutely despise.) After about two hours though, I finally kept some anti-nausea medication down. I'm still nauseated, but no longer vomiting unless I try to stand up. I'm actually feeling a little better at the moment. (Though still experiencing a bit of pain...
Also i Suffer with very bad acid reflux and Trapped wind , my blood pressure is fine but i am overweigt at 20st aprox 127 KG.
Some of the many results of dehydration include heartburn, rheumatoid pain, back pain, anginal (heart) pain, headaches, leg pain on walking, high blood pressure, and, amazingly, much more. Recommended Dosage: A minimum of six to eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. Alcohol, coffee, tea and caffeine-containing beverages don't count as water. The best times to drink water are: one glass 1/2-hour before eating (i.e.
Started 150mg Levo, increased to £175mg (which was when they introduced the propanalol also as the levo caused panic attacks and high blood pressure). Dropped me back down to 100mg then increased to 125mg....still feel awful, can't cope with the pains in wrists, ankles, neck, shoulders and back much more. They have sent me to physiotherapy which is rubbish as they just have me doing exercises with a latex strip (which aggrevates the pain even more). Feel at a loose end.
These also thin the blood, and can be a problem when combined with Warfarin. For a cough, try something like guaifenesin, like Robitussin Severe Congestion Liquagels or Mucinex. Avoid dextramethorphan, like Robitussin DM. It is okay to treat the symptoms of your cough, but if you are getting symptoms that point toward bacterial infection requiring antibiotics, make sure you see your doctor.
The ingredients are acetaminophen, guaifenesin, and phenylephrine. Will any of those ingredients caus a positive drug or alcohol test?
I've also had my thyroid tested, B12 levels, basic metabolic panel, multiple ultrasounds, CT scans, MRI's, gastric emptying tests, HIDA, barium swallow, endoscopy/colonoscopy, extensive blood work, etc and for the most part everything is fine and physically I appear healthy. I feel like I'm going crazy because none of it makes sense. NONE of these match and so I never really sought out help. Now that I have, people are saying I'm a hypochondriac and I'm really not.
My resting heart rate is generally 84 bpm, and has been for years. Blood pressure is usually 120/70 or 60. It's been 120/50 and 120/80 a few times, but some of those times I was ill. I have PTS (post traumatic stress disorder), bipolar, and tend to suffer from panic attacks. I've had a history of: Hayfever, chronic bronchitis, chronic sinus infection, ear infection, and fluid in the lungs (usually from some sort of bacterial infection).
I have been sick with a weird caugh and phlegm and mucus from 3/14/06 to date I saw my PA on 3/14/06 she said I had bronchitis and she order 4 me to have a chest x-ray done. She put me on a "Z-Pack" & Robitussin Codine.helped out for about 2 weeks and then I worst then before.

Almost immediately, I started coughing up CLUMPS of mucus, not liquidy or slimy, but more gelatenous (sorry if it is too much info), and the Aleve DID help with the soreness and pressure... for a while. Eventually, it is almost like whatever it was was altering itself to resist what I was taking. A few days later, where the Aleve initially was completely relieving the pressure and soreness, soon, it was only relieving the pressure, and the soreness persisted.
Fibromyalgia (FMS or Fibro for short) is a chronic condition which causes widespread pain and fatigue as well as a variety of other symptoms. The name Fibromyalgia comes from "fibro" meaning fibrous tissues (such as tendons and ligaments), "my" meaning muscles, and "algia" meaning pain. Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.
The doctors feel possibly I'm allergic to one of my medications as I have many allergies and asthma. I take Brethine, Uniphyl, Zenstoretic (blood pressure), catapres blood pressure), Celebrex, Synthroid and Nexium. Could any of these cause a cough? I take over the counter Triaminic to help the cough, plus cold/sinus tablets which seem to offer temporary help. This pain is interrupting my otherwise active life! I'm 67.
Now I have a doctor again that will be treating me for my blood pressure. I have to have my 6 week check up next week and I'm hoping to be confident enough to say something then.
I was given some kind of antibiotic shot in the butt, and then sent home with three doses (days) of Azithromycin (500 mg per dose). I was also put on blood pressure medication for the first time. It is Lisinopril, 10 mg in the morning and evening. Other than this I take Spiriva once a day and use albuterol by nebulizer. I also take many supplements every day.
Spent 5 days in the hospital and they ran MRI/MRA, CT scan, stress test, ultra sound of my heart and couratic nerves, EKG, EEG and many blood tests. All results are normal and show nothing. I was released from the hospital on 11/29 but was back at the ER on 11/30 because I had another severe episode - I have a feeling of faintish but do not faint. nausea w/ no vomitting. There is always a feeling of pressure and circulation in my head. I was prescribed topamax but it has done nothing.
You may ask for blood test for TPO AB and TG AB.
For a cough, you may take cough medicines with dextromethorphan (dex-tro-meth-ORfan) and guaifenesin (gwy-FEN-ih-sin), like Robitussin DM, as directed. For seasonal allergies or hay fever, which may include watery eyes and a runny nose, you may take Benadryl (25mg to 50 mg), every 6 hours as needed. Use caution when taking Benadryl. It may make you drowsy. For heartburn or indigestion, try taking an antacid such as Tums, Rolaids, Maalox, or Mylanta as directed.

Within a couple of days he developed severe yellow/green nasal discharge and was coughing up yellow/green phlem tinged with blood. The vet added another antibiotic. A couple of days later, he was having greater difficulty breathing, he stopped eating, and one eye would only open halfway. I took him back to the vet where he was held in isolation. When the vet checked on him the next morning, he began coughing up copious amounts of blood and immediately died.
yes lucy i have noticed that. i am guessing the it means your not bleeding heavily and since maybe your cervix is "pointed" back or forward that is where the blood goes. sounds good anyway lol. and i have to say i have taken guaifenesin (cough syrup) and it does make you more mucusy. so anyone that was curious about it try it. im not due to o for days yet but i feel it much more than usual.
Well after the operation I thought I'd better cut down as constipation was real bad issue, up to 45mins to pass what seemed like an Elephant, I even ruptured a nose blood vessel with the straining at one time, and as a friend who had had the same operation was off painkillers after 3 weeks I thought now's the time. ( 05/12/07 ) So taking the bull by the horns I cut down to 40mg 2x a day, and never expected what happens next.
I also have been worried to death ,I have had this for over 4 months now ,,I wake up in a panic because my head feels like it plugged with cotton .and my right ear feels tons of pressure and some times pain. I tell myself something had to be badly wrong ,,but I think the worry is just causing me panic and that it's self it making me sick !
