    Question Can one take ATrovent nasal spray, sudafed PE tablets with HBP?

    Can I or anyone take these types of Meds if they are taking b/p meds like Toprol, Norvasc, Diovan, etc.? My sister needs something so badly for her 'drippy nose' that is really causing her distress because she has 'non-allergic rhinitis' and these are the meds suggested on Mayo Clinic's website, for this problem, and it doesn't say if a person can take them while taking these other meds for HBP.
    She gets attacks of 'dripping nose' so often it is hindering her quality of life, ruining her day, and then the next day she's fine. They happen while she's out shopping, eating, etc. She plans to ask her doctor about taking these suggested medications but we wondered if anyone here has been told they cannot take these suggested remedies while taking HBP medications. Any comments that you might have would be appreciated. thanks.

    I take Allegra 180 and Flonase year round. I DO NOT take Allegra D!

    Stay away from Sudafed. There is a version that is safer (I can't remember right now what it is) and I took that for a VERY short time when I had a horrible cold. Claritin should be fine also - but not with the decongestent.

    Yanksgirl,

    I was prescribed Atrovent for asthma and I am on five blood pressure meds. It should be OK to take.

    Thanks so much for your reply and for the other reply too. I hope my 87 year old sister can get this Atrovent spray because this problem is making it so she hates to plan going anywhere for fear of her nose suddenly starting the constant 'dripping' which makes her miserable.

    Atrovent is supposed to be good for nasal congestion & drippy issues. Please tell her to follow the instructions and use it precisely as prescribed. Older people need smaller than usual doses of medication to achieve the same results, because they metabolize medication differently.
