Why should high blood pressure sufferers consider cold medicines without decongestants?
If you have high blood pressure, it’s important you choose a cold medicine that’s decongestant-free, like Coricidin® HBP, since decongestants can affect your blood pressure.
Can decongestants affect the efficacy of my blood pressure medication?
