Brief Answer: Do not stop it immediately.. Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for reverting back with your follow up consultation. As far as stopping of the drug is concerned you should not stop it immediately [alternative days]. Since there is/are variations in blood pressure from morning to evening, so practical guideline which I follow with my patients is that I go for serial check up of blood pressure [10:00 AM in morning and 6:00 PM in evening] for 10 days continuously and thereby getting baseline measurements to decide whether blood pressure remains constant throughout the day or there is fluctuation from the normal and then decide accordingly. PS. usually the tapering of dose goes from 4-6 months [regime which I follow, but your Health care professional will be in better position to talk about the same]. I would also increase probiotic [yogurt] in your daily diet. Dr. Munish Sood Consultant & Physician Naimittika.

Brief Answer: Go low go slow Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for your prompt reply. 1. You should continue on alternate basis for 4-6 months and keep check on your blood pressure measurements. 2. since nasal blockage is due to cold, and XXXXXXX vati also causes the same, take it once in morning [till cold gets cured] thereafter take 1/2 tablet on alternate basis.

Brief Answer: clarification Detailed Answer: Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for the concern raised 1. since your history suggests nasal blockage (with cold) so it is interpreted that stuffy nose is due to weather change and not because of medicine for which point second was mentioned [meaning till cold gets cured take it regularly but once it gets cured start on alternate basis] 2. for nasal blockage: . Avoid:Heavy to digest, slimy and acidic food, curd, beans, mustard oil, excess physical exertion, sunlight-dust areas, exposure to strong winds, day sleeping, smoking, potato, green leafy vegetables, cold water/food. .Take: old brown rice, soup of moong dal, black grapes, cow’s or goat milk, garlic, lukewarm water to drink, black pepper, dried ginger, honey, mulethi, launga. .Take Raw ginger+ raw turmeric: [2 gm each] and fry in cow’s ghee [6 gm] and thereafter add 6 gm jaggery and take at bed time [during night] . for prescription medicine for nasal blockage you may contact your attending Doctor.

Hi, My 3 year old has bad enviornmental allergies and takes a antihistamine and nasal spray everyday. She usually has a runny nose with clear mucous, itchy eyes and even wheezing when the weather changes or if the pollen is high but it usually goes away and is not severe. She has had a really stuffy nose, alot of thick mucous and a bad smell from her nose. She had a nose bleed last night and Im cocerned thats it might be more than allergies.

Hi , I m a 33 yr Male and have had a stuffy nose for as long as I can remember, probably about 65% all the time, I have never had the energy it thought I should, and constant ringing in my ears that Im used to. I can sleep throught the night no worries though. I have assumed that the lack of energy was just a motivation thing, I have been checked and are healthy. Is possible that the stuffed nose could be affecting how I feel day to day? Should I bother with an ENT?
