Don't know about the best cough medicine , however, your cough may be a reaction to the type of blood pressure medication you are taking. Speak with your pharmacist or doctor about it.
I have high blood pressure and am a type 2 diabetic what can I take for a bad cold ?
Please tell your doctor when you remember too. Call him or her from home. High blood pressure and a cough that is chronic should be treated by your doctor. I hope you feel better soon.
It is true that I am not a physician but just happen to have type 2 Diabetes and I do know that for a middle age woman with this condition Robitussin DM makes a sugar free cough medication, I would ask her pharmacist/or/doctor since you mentioned she has other medical conditions just to be sure that this will be fine with him. I hope this is valuable information but please be sure this is acceptable with the doctor.
Sorry, things are so much more complicated when you are dealing with diabetes. Even without that consideration, cough and cold meds are broken down by which specific symptoms you are experiencing. I agree, asking your doctor or pharmacist, who is familiar with what meds you are on is your best way to find out. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
This is a specific question for a certified MD, my father has type 2 and he has never made any decisions on medications without calling his local pharmacy/pharmacist or doctor first... I couldn't really tell you, not familiar with med's you are on and interactions... call a 24 hour pharmacy first and ask the man/woman who's going to know with certainty... licensed pro, very important when you take into the consideration of your conditions... please get back with us...
