High Blood Pressure and a cold

Anyone know of any otc drugs used for treating the common cold? I'm on accupril. By the time the doctor's office calls back, I'll be an old lady.

Try Coricidin. It has various types of cold medicine for people with high blood pressure. Unfortunately we can't have decongestants without risk.

Tell your pharmacist you have high blood pressure and ask for a recommendation. As was mentioned, decongestants are out.
