That won't raise my blood pressure. I'm currently taking Clonidine and Metoprolol

There are several other ways to help your symptoms.
Take a pain reliever. To relieve a fever, sore throat, headache or body aches, try aspirin or acetaminophen (Tylenol)
Use saline nasal spray. To relieve nasal congestion, try saline nasal spray. The spray can help flush your sinuses.
Drink plenty of fluids especially water which can help clear your lungs of phlegm and mucus.
Increase the humidity in your home. Use a cool-mist humidifier or vaporizer to moisten the air and ease congestion and coughing. Try using an inhalation (added to very hot water and inhale the vapour) to clear nasal passages and chest.
Get plenty of rest. If you're not feeling well, take it easy.
Call your doctor if your signs and symptoms get worse instead of better or last more than 10 days.
