Guaifenesin and high blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Guaifenesin and high blood pressure


Avatar f tn I have had the coughing problem for years, but the mucous problem began after I had pneumonia a few years ago...
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 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!

Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
1201929 tn?1293711672 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.
798555 tn?1292791151 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.
Avatar n tn Do not use this medicine if you have untreated or uncontrolled diseases such as glaucoma, asthma or COPD, high blood pressure, heart disease, coronary artery disease, or overactive thyroid. Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase your risk of liver damage while taking acetaminophen and can increase certain side effects of chlorpheniramine.
Avatar n tn I am otherwise healthy and take Clatitin D and occasionally Guaifenesin. There is a very large history of heart disease/high blood pressure in my family. So, I'm a tad scared right now. So, here we go: Strange symptoms: It all started about . . . 2 days ago. The really bad stuff, anyways. The dizziness started maybe 3-4 days ago. I am currently babysitting a 2 year old who contracted some sort of viral infection. It caused him to have a runny nose and he coughed a lot.
Avatar m tn 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.
554442 tn?1221238825 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.
Avatar f tn If you take a D vitamin, is it D2 or D3? -Have you been diagnosed with high blood pressure? -Have you been prescribed a cholesterol medication? -How many medications are you on? (if any) -Do you have natural teeth or dentures that you chew your food with? -Do you have at least one bowel movement a day? -Is your congestion nasal only or upper airway as well? You can send your answers to me via private message if you like. I hope I can help a little anyway!
Avatar m tn The immune system releases many substances, such as prostaglandins and histamines, which makes the blood vessels get bigger and begin to leak, and makes the mucus glands begin working overtime, in order to flush out the viruses. These substances also make you cough and sneeze in order to expel the viruses, which helps you get rid of them, and also helps the virus to spread to other humans.
Avatar n tn I can't take some of the meds for a cold because I already have high blood pressure. This is a fun site to me that allows me to not feel alone with my pregnancy but to know other pregnant women can relate or vice versa.
Avatar n tn 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.
429155 tn?1205676864 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.
Avatar n tn UH what my blood pressure was sky high, I felt like a truck ran me over and backed up and did it again. Okay, after years of aches, pains, chronic fatigue, swollen joints, NIGHT JOLTS, sweating, numbness in the hands and feet, cold so cold fingers and feet, I had been told Lupus, well this latest development was not related to Lupus, I saw the Rhemotolgist, NEG FOR graves, lyme, ANA test neg one of the lupus tests was a little off, but nothing of lupus in the brain.
Avatar n tn It got worse as the day progressed and eventually I ended up in the ER with a low grade fever, high white count and UNGODLY pain. I was admitted and had a CT and an upper GI. All they found was "chronic constipation". This shocked me, as I had been having regular bowel movements and had been on fiber therapy. After 2 days of fluids only I was sent home. Two weeks later - WHAM - happened again. Back in the hospital for an endoscopy and colonoscopy.
1454590 tn?1285272156 6 is extremely high, and she said she has never seen a progesterone level this high and the woman not be preg!?!?! I am so confused and anxious!! Since taking prometrium to initiate my periods, I usually have a 23 - 24 day cycle. Today is CD26 and I havent had any cramps or spotting. Has anyone been in a similar situation or have advice? Thanks!
589816 tn?1332980371 I had my dr's appt today on account of my high blood pressure. She has put me on a diruretic (sp?), so I guess I can expect to pee ALOT and won't have any idea if it's 'cause I'm pg or not (most noticable symptom last time). I went to the pharmacy to get my Rx filled. The pharmacist was explaining what it was going to do and said that it would dry me out - all I could think of was "oh no, I don't have that much CM to begin with!
Avatar n tn 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 !
Avatar f tn In the roof of my mouth I have had this bump that keeps busting filled with blood and pus for a year now. I didn't have insurance and couldn't go to the dentist. I have a temporary root canal done since 2004 that now has a big abcess in the hole of my tooth that ruptures. I have this rash on the bottom of my feet since 2004 that I was treating like athletes feet but comes and goes with watery like small boils that itch so bad that I scratch my feet until it bleeds.
Avatar n tn but ive continued to have ALOT of dizzy spells ...i get alot of crackling and popping in my ears...alot of pressure around my head and neck also a headache for 2mths ...i just got a cold a week ago a kinda bad one ...well i was blowing my nose and nothing came out ..then i sniffed and thought hmm i need to blow it again ...well i blew it and bright yellow snot come out ....i continued to blow it a good 15 times ...
Avatar n tn might seem hard to breathe for awhile and blood kinda rush to your head but it definately completely drains out all your musus/sinus problems.
Avatar n tn But I was reluctant because he said the downside is that excess extraction of the sodium can lead to low blood pressure and gout. I have also tried TCM with accupucture for 2 - 3 months before I came to this site. The vertigo seem to be under control, but the noise problem was still as bad as before, and like what many sufferers say, it's driving me crazy.
1160836 tn?1332333769 I had gone and bought a clearblue fertility monitor and it had high reading but no peak fertility for 2 months then i just stopped using as i had my doc appt for my referral to start clomid. I didn't want to waste money if it wasn't gonna work until i got af. Im gonna try to use the fert monitor even though i know clomid can scew reading a bit. I got bought it new off ebay for $100 cdn the test strips are $56 but htats 30 sticks so could possibly be good for 3 months worth.
Avatar n tn I have a blocked ET and injured my ear while SCUBA diving last week because I could not equalize the pressure in my right ear. I spit up blood and my nose was bleeding following the dive when I reached the surface. I think my diving career may be over. I also suffer from tinnitus which I have had since 1992. I always thought a very loud explosion I was exposed to during the first Gulf War caused this but now I am not sure.
Avatar f tn I had explained what happened to me and that I did NOT want anything to cause high eye pressure. Guess what? Right on the label it said causes high eye pressure. EDUCATE yourself. These Docs are not Gods. They are people with bills to pay. More than the rest of us. First thing, CALM down. Stress irratates us. The body will kick in trying to cope with that. Also, know your symptoms. Do not Fail to get medical help if you have a high fever,or suspect something serious.
Avatar n tn If you scratch at the itch it will only become worse as you are increasing the blood flow in the capillaries around the area and also you are scratching much harder as the general area is numb. I also read a theory that it is lactic acid pooling in the muscles due to tension spasms. I find that the best treatment is using microwave warmable grain filled pillows on the affected area.
