What Can I Do if I Catch a Cold and I have High Blood Pressure?

Check the list of your cold medications and be sure that they will not make your high blood pressure worse. You should avoid ingredients, such as decongestants. You should choose the medication designed for people who have high blood pressure. Otherwise, other cold medication may increase your blood pressure and make it worse. Coricidin is a good recommendation.
