Welcome in H.C.M. for query regarding safe OTC medicine for cold, because you are taking anti hypertensive treatment and there is planning for angiography.

I think you may take CETRIZINE (10 mg) or FEXOFENADINE (120 mg) in once a day and at the same time Steam inhalation will also give you much relief.

I expect your speedy recovery.
