Antihistamine raise blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Antihistamine raise blood pressure


Avatar n tn Hi Doc, Just need your confirmation whether ingestion of antibiotic or antihistamine can have some effect on the blood pressure. I have been observing that whenenver I'm on either medication, my blood pressure tend to rise.
Avatar f tn One thing I did not mentioned to him is that my blood pressure has been running low recently. When I just took my bp it was 99/52. The diastolic number for the last few days has been below 60 and has been as low as 47. For the most part I feel alright maybe a tad bit weak and tired. I've been having abdominal tenderness, burping, hiccups, chest discomfort, and back aches. My doctor thinks these are related to reflux.

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 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.
1670226 tn?1334255874 The problem with some OTC meds is that they can raise blood pressure or heart rate, so might do more damage than good. You might take a look at some antihistamine products; I found a Walmart brand that's equivalent to Zyrtec, that worked for me. I'm hypo, though, so you should still try to talk to your doctor before trying an OTC.
Avatar m tn Because of the glaucoma the ENT did not want to give me nasal steroid spray because it would raise the pressure, but he did want to give me oral prednisone but that would raise my blood sugar and they cannot predict how much because everyone is different. He did order a CT scan with BrainLab protocol but now the family health center I go to no longer has an ENT clinic and the regular MD will only tell me to use an antihistamine and a saline nasal spray. So far that's not doing nothing to help.
Avatar f tn Hey there :) I don't know about if it happens in 100% of cases but when I'm having a bad attack, my peak flow drops dramatically. When I'm weel, the best I do is about 470 but during an attack, it can drop to about 150 if really bad. My asthma care is based on my peak flow readings. Ask your nurse about a plan. You have different zones depending on the readings and things to do for each zone. If your peak flow is always better than normal, I would ask your doc for advice.
Avatar n tn Yoga or exercise moves that put the eye inverted (think standing on your head) markedly raise the pressure in the eye and the blood pressure inside the brain. It is strongly recommended that glaucoma patients not do this and many MDs recommend people with high blood pressure or a family history of cerebral aneurysms not do this. It will also raise the tissue pressure so I would say you were upside down too long.
Avatar f tn and on the palm of my hand 3 pinsized brown dots under the skin was wondering if anyone knew what causes these...
Avatar n tn I've seen commercials recently marketing a cold medicine that doesn't raise blood pressure. Do you think that means it wouldn't raise the heart rate either? As far as saline solutions (comment from Mell22). I know they are safe. I use them every night and morning. But what I would give for something that would help the sinus's and unclog the nose during severe colds.
Avatar n tn IgG is a part of your immune system that helps you to fight infections. When the IgG level in your blood is low it can be harder for you to fight infections. Recurring infections are the most common problem with CVID. These commonly include sinus and chest infections. Replacement therapy with intravenous gammaglobulin is the treatment for CVID. This will raise your IgG levels so that you can fight infections better. Please read our Immune Deficiencies MedFact at http://www.
Avatar m tn The alternative would be to treat all as anaphylactic shock but using my eppi if not a real reaction could be dangerous because if my heart was going boom boom my blood pressure is high and adding medication to raise pressure is a bad idea. If anaphylactic shock my pressure is low even if my heart is boom boom so the eppi brings it back up to normal. Bummer. I will still have to make a conclusion bases on each event as it happens.
Avatar f tn Got POTS suddenly and am in bed a lot, and housebound. Blood pressure is now normal and heart rate with doing little is not excessive but does rise well over 30 point when I stand. I am nauseas a lot, can' sleep and very weak. One doc wants me to try florinef but I am concerned if my BP is normal. Another says Beta blocker..short acting metropanolol but I worry since resting heart rate is low and below 60 at night.
Avatar f tn The 1st doctor had a look and straight away it cant be herpes but we did a type specific blood test to check. The test came back positive for HSV type 1 IgG (which I do get coldsore very rarely) and negative for HSV type 2 IgG and IgM which she explained to me that, that means my body hasnt produce antibodies for type 2 and that my blood wasnt showing that I was having a HSV type 2 breakout at the time it was taken. Ok so that means I dont have HSV 2.
Avatar n tn I've been told that when we're stressed we can hyperventilate and that this can affect carbon dioxide levels which can affect blood pressure. I was recently getting very fatigued and wasn't tolerating exercise very well. It came back that I was anemic. Excessive urination I put down to anxiety, drinking too much caffeine (which is said to be a diuretic) or asthma meds. Not sure about the other stuff.
Avatar m tn I went to my doctor yesterday and my blood pressure was pretty normal as well as my EKG results. The doctor said there is nothing to worry about and it's okay to be able to see the pulse. I am still getting anxiety from paying attention to it though. I guess my question(s) is, is this normal/okay? Will the visible pulse go away once I stop being so anxious? Maybe when my medicine is at the original dose and completely kicked in it will go away?
612551 tn?1450025775 They are so-called alpha-agonists (inverse effect of alpha blockers which are blood pressure medications). The alpha effect of adrenaline is to constrict blood vessels. So the spray works by constrict blood vessels, to make more space in your nose / sinuses. A problem is that they also may elevate systemic blood pressure to a certain degree. New sprays also contains a substance almost similar to adrenaline (alpha and beta agonist).
Avatar f tn I was asthmatic for a long time and had chronic diarrhea and high blood pressure. My rescue inhaler didn't work and neither did the steroid inhaler. I was miserable and hopeless. I quit eating gluten and within a few days the asthma went away and within a few weeks the diarrhea stopped and the blood pressure problem corrected itself. All my antibodies were being used up to fight the gluten and not pollen, perfumes etc. I no longer get sick, the asthma is gone and so is the chronic diarrhea.
Avatar f tn If I understood correctly, grapefruit will enhance or build up the drugs in your blood. So, if your on high blood pressure meds for instance, it could cause it to go down too much. If your on a high dose of anti dep. you could get too much. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The one thing I did get from the articles is, the bad cholesterol which the virus attaches itself to, is eliminated out of the body with grapefruit.
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.
620923 tn?1452919248 We were told she has the blood pressure problem - drops with movement. Can't remember the name right now... Chiari... ;) With my history, I "asked" the pediatrician if this is something we need to look at more closely. She agreed and referred her to a neurologist. My daughter has her first MRIs on Monday. Eeek! But without me having these symptoms, we would not know it wasn't normal!
Avatar n tn My stomach kept hurting and burning so I went to the doctor and they did some blood work. My tests came back postive for H. Pylori which is a stomach infection. I took 4000 mg a day of antibiotics for 2 weeks and it did not go away. My white blood count was 1.6 about 3 weeks ago. I am wondering since my white blood cells were so low that I am not fighting off the infection.
1571878 tn?1354953383 They definitely care, and we owe it to them to a) save ourselves, b) get better, so c) we can fight to spread support and awareness to help others out and, one day, raise enough awareness to do something about this. Because, as you know, something is VERY, VERY WRONG, here. There ARE long-term effects. There IS permanent damage from HEAVY, CHRONIC abuse. There HAVE been suicides.
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, after reading everyones comments I felt the need to create a post. My mother had been suffering from the same symptoms everyone as explained. She would get itchy legs whenever she would exercise. It even caused her to refrain from exercising for 3 years. Myself having a B.S in Biology and certification with the American College of Sports Medicine knew alot about the human body. I knew it had to be an allergic symptom, so I urged her to see doctors about the issue.
Avatar f tn I could try all that otc stuff but the problem is I don't have a doctor or health insurance. I still have the 8mg/2mg suboxone film strips that I got from a friend but I'm scared to take them after reading about sub on the website plus I've never taken anything else but tabs.
Avatar n tn I have checked blood sugar and blood pressure to make sure. Both are great. I have also recently lost some weight. So now I have gotten my BMI down to 27. By the way I am only 30. So I think over all that is good. I did however this winter, have some ear issues. I had a horrible sinus infection and my ears were killing me. That nevers happens I am just not one to ever have earaches so I took some advil. It went away and life went on. Now this! I have pretty much stopped driving anywhere alone.
530191 tn?1214166411 The most well tolerated initial treatment is the non-sedating antihistamine Claritin. Zyrtec is similar but may sometimes cause sedation. If that doesn't eliminate the hives, a sedating-type of antihistamine (hydroxyzine, cyproheptadine or doxepin) is added at night. High doses may be needed and this will cause sedation. Fortunately, most patients will become less affected by sedation after they have taken the drug regularly for a while.
Avatar m tn Point well taken, my theory would be if cell permeation is the number one hindrance (as HR has suggested many times) then an antihistamine that even eats into the silicone it's been tested on might mean its ten fold effect is because of it's ability to break through cell walls and lipid shells on the virions, probably both. For me already being UND there's less to worry about, although it is those lingerers that have half of us relasping.
Avatar n tn In your last note, wouldn't the symptons be constant if I had any of the things you noted? Another thing that has been odd lately is that my blood pressure has been elevated a bit the last two times I have had it taken. My blood pressure has always been excellent, but this last two times (about three weeks ago and then again 2 weeks ago) I had an upper number of 140.
