cetirizine hcl 10 mg and bisopr/hctz 5mg
1 Reply RSS
If you hvae high blood pressure can you take these two meds at the same time? Or will it cause your blood pressure to go up? ## It actually has nothing to do with using the medications together, they aren't known to cause any interactions. The problem stems from the fact that the Cetirizine is an antihistamine and they, by their very nature, can raise blood pressure. Have you discussed it with your doctor? Its really going to depend on your blood pressure levels and how dangerous it might be for you to use an antihistamine. If your blood pressure is staying at a normal level, so the elevation it may cause won't put you in any danger, your doctor might decide that it is safe for you to take it. However, I know when mine was still somewhat high, they restricted me to only using Be... ...

compression sleeeve + warfarin
2 Replies RSS
I had my lymph nodes removed from left axilla 19 years ago, for breast cancer. I am now taking warfarin for Afib and high blood pressure, both now regulated by medication fairly well. I know you can't use a 24 hr.BP monitor while taking warfarin, I assume because of the pressure on the arm - what about wearing a compression sleeve when travelling by air? ## That is something you should really check with your doctor about and see if it is safe for you to do. The pressurized air in the cabin, coupled with the elevation tends to raise your blood pressure. This, along with the fact that you are on Warfarin can affect the safety and advisability of doing so. In some cases, it may depend on the length of the flight, as well. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for your re... ...
