Is it safe to take Mucinex with pseudoephedrine?

I have mild High Blood Pressure and take Linsopril. I am taking Mucinex with pseudoephedrine. I know the pseudoephedrine will raise the blood pressure some. Can I still take the Linsopril with the it or should I skip a dose? Will they work against each other.

Hello,

As per your history, yes you can take mucinex with pseudoephedrin.

Along with that in case of fever, you can take tablet acetaminophen. Take steam inhalation twice a day. Do saline or Betadine gargles.

Do regular blood pressure monitoring. Take a balanced diet. In case of fever, you may require antibiotics after consultation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician

I took a cold med today at 11 am it has 30mg of puesephedrine. I may have a u a tomorrow for my doctor in which of course I will let her know I took it but have in the past been accused of using drugs because of a cold med like this and it s hard to explain it when a lab says that this is what s in it. I took one tab generic kind which contained 200 mg of ibuprofen as well. I just want to know if it will be out of my system by 11 am tomorrow. I hate having to explain things that I am not doing wrong but am prepared with the empty container.

I have a bad cough and clogged sinuses for over 3 months and am allergic to something in cigarette smoke. My doctor prescribed Allegra-D 24-hr, but Aetna decided it was an 'over the counter' drug, now I'm having a problem finding allegra-d 24-hour pills. So he prescribed clarinex d, 24-hour, but it doesn't work as well as allegra-d. why does fexofenadine and pseudoephedrine work better than loratadine and pseudoephedrine? and why is it so hard to find now?
