Allegra and high blood pressure: A connection?

Filed under: , , ,

For someone with Allergies, Allegra can be a life-saver. But for someone who takes it, it can also be a life-ender, particularly with the use of Allegra-D, which contains a decongestant. The decongestant in Allegra, pseudoephedrine, works by restricting blood vessels, which can be a serious problem for people with high blood pressure because it raises it. And having habitually high blood pressure can lead to other problems, including stroke, kidney failure congestive heart failure, heart attack and more.

If you suffer from allergies and high blood pressure, please talk to your doctor about alternative therapies for both problems.
