Common Questions and Answers about Antihistamine and blood pressure medication


Avatar n tn My Mom is 82. She took a blood pressure medication and now she has hives. She took the BP med for 2 weeks before the hives came. How long does ot take for the hives to leave, assuming the blood pressure med was the cause. Does it take a while because even though she quit taking the BP med about a week ago, the hives are still there.
211266 tn?1222288519 you shouldn't use it if you have high or low blood pressure,asthma and quite a few other should talk to your doctor is a link for more information. http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn It would seem that the nightly dose of Codeine has already caused you to be addicted to this concoction that is only meant to be taken occasionally for coughs colds and congestion. The low blood pressure is a concern if you are light headed or dizzy. You need to be honest and open with your physician and you absolutely must stop misusing this combination medication that may very well be causing damage to your body.

Avatar n tn My vertigo has gone hand in hand with sinus pressure according to my doc diagnoses today, and it included dizzy spells and light headedness and migrained and much more. I even have double vision for some weird reason and I wear glasses, thought it was time for new check up, but the doc assured me that its vertigo. (first time with vertigo and wish I never had it). Has the doc tried to give you Nasacort? Just wondering. I'm on it right now for Vertigo.

Avatar f tn She has a history of bleeding ulcers, she smokes about 2 packs of cigarettes a week, high blood pressure, and other ailments of old age. I didn't realize that she was taking so much of this medicine. Especially the excedrine and prilosec. I have not been able to accurately assess how much excedrine she takes because I think she buys it on the sly. I wouldn't be surprised if it is 10 to 20 a day. The prilosec is worse.
Avatar n tn Pressure in face and ears Sharp pain in ear once or twice a day Some pressure in area behind ear going straight down neck behind ear Burning/tingling sensation in tongue Burning sensation/pressure in nose near eyes pressure felt in teeth and gums Now for more background. I take Exforge for blood pressure (have taken this for years), Nexium, and a Generic Brand Allegra. Went to my GP regarding the problem back we hen it started.
1006065 tn?1251482269 caused more nervousness and anxiety (turns out I'm sensitive to it and to other meds in this class of drugs!) I took the Clonidine and my blood pressure came down so low, I could not hold myself up, I could not sit up and my head was so heavy it was on my chest. I was told, by my pain management doctor, to continue my Darvocet three times a day (which I did) and my Clonazepam at bedtime (which I went off of cold turkey because I thought...
Avatar n tn Was ridiculed, brushed aside, shouted out and condescended to. Lyme can evade detection in BOTH blood and spinal fluid so it is ultimately a clinical diagnosis. You don't have to recall a bite or have gotten the rash to get it. I sure didn't.
Avatar n tn They did bloodwork that came back normal. Since that time I have had daily head pressure and tinnitus. The tinnitus comes and goes and can be really loud and annoying. Visited another doctor in Sep who thought it might be an allergic reaction and was given zyrtec for a month. No change with the head pressure. Saw an ENT in Oct who feels that it just a left-over from whatever made me ill in Jun and thinks it will get better with time. Have had this for 5 months.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, I have been having this problem for the last 4 years and still didn't find a solution for my problems. It started with ear pressure and my ears feel clogged and full all the time and I keep trying to pop them every day. I keep opening jaw and pushing through nose to try to keep them open but with no longterm success. This has been happening on a daily basis for the last for 4 years and it is really hard to live like this.
Avatar n tn Antihistamines aren't so much a problem as decongestants. Certain decongestants (e.g. psedoepedrine, phenylephrine) increase the blood pressure and should be avoided by persons with high blood pressure. Of course he should check with his doctor before taking any medication if he is already taking other medications.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.
Avatar f tn Wellbutrin and decongestants are both stimulants (which would explain the agitation) and can both increase blood pressure, so the two meds together could bring on a hypertensive crisis (esp. in someone who already has high blood pressure), and this could even lead to a stroke. Ask your pharmacist about the safety of taking any particular decongestant along with your Wellbutrin.
Avatar m tn I went and saw the doctor and I did some blood tests. The blood tests results all came back fine. The doctor said the pressure feeling on my head could be due to tension headaches as mentioned above. He told me to monitor the progress and see if it gets better. He told me to do more exercise so blood flows to my head properly and to take it easy and see if things improve.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar f tn Are you taking any medications for high blood pressure? Certain blood pressure medications are notorious for this side effect.
182493 tn?1348056515 You must come off this medicine slowly—rebound hypertension may occur…especially if you already have high blood pressure…this medication is non-addicting; Vistaril 50-100mg…three times daily…this is a sedating antihistamine which helps with anxiety and sleep…down side is that after 10 days or so it loses its therapeutic efficacy; Phenergan 25 mg tab…one every 6 hours for nausea and cramps. I may use these medications on my out/in-patient clients depending on the severity of symptoms.
Avatar n tn Atarax is an antihistamine used to relieve the symptoms of common anxiety and tension and, in combination with other medications, to treat anxiety that results from physical illness. It also relieves itching from allergic reactions and can be used as a sedative before and after general anesthesia. Antihistamines work by decreasing the effects of histamine, a chemical the body releases that narrows air passages in the lungs and contributes to inflammation.
Avatar f tn This happened at the same time I was having the PVC's and my blood sugar was dropping. (My blood sugar drops multiple times a day and I eat every 2 1/2 to 3 hours.). The only other time I noticed that I got Abdominal pains was 1-2 hours after eating eggs. It would be the same diffuse abdominal pains, nausea, (no dizziness or PVC's). The pain would be so bad, I had to lay down and put a hot water bottle on my abdomen for 3-4 hours. Then it would just go away on its own.
Avatar m tn ) So where do i begin, as of late i've been on a course of citlalopram (Depression medication) for over 4 months and Anti allergie remedies (e.g, nose spray, Antihistamine) with mixed success.
Avatar n tn I have experienced Lyme disease symptoms such as muscle pain in between joints, TMJ, legs feet hands and wondering if anyone else has had this experience. Got blood tests and all OK. Wondering if Daily use of Afrin severe congestion is the cause???
Avatar m tn The way the EP (electrophysiologist) explained it was that the blood pressure drops with pressure and movement so with the drop it is not circulating up to the head as it normally would. Although, I also have herniated cerebellar tonsils/probably Chiari Malformation. I never had any POTS type symptoms until a trauma occured to my neck. Try looking under Vanderbilt Dysautonomia.
Avatar n tn I have also lost 23 pounds and my blood pressure and blood sugar is finely normal again for the first time in awhile. Anyone have any ideas or comments?
Avatar n tn Pain goes away and stays away if I'm not doing much. But dull sensitive sensation and pressure is still there. If I'm being active pain will come back in about 4 hrs. I take another two aspirins pain ususually stays away. Whats strange is sometimes my vision in my left eye will become doubled. Double vision subsides once tenderness goes away almost like there's a healing process in my temple before vision is restored.
Avatar n tn I don;t take blood pressure medication, nor any other, and I have had this problem for 10 years. I am also a doctor and have been to many specialists for treatment. In my case this v shape that looks like a permanent sunburn is skin damage caused by the sun over time. It comes from years of wearing shirts that expose that area and never using sunscreen (until too late). I have tried antihistamine creams and even a vasoconstrictor cream, steroids (I dont recommend) and various redness creams.
Avatar n tn This condition should be closely watched for any growth pattern that can be rapid, and the only treatment is to lower blood pressure and avoid heavy lifting exercise. Lisinopril is medication to lower high blood pressure. In most cases angioedema is harmless and don't leave any lasting marks, even without treatment. The most common treatment for angioedema is antihistamine medications.
