Allegra And High Blood Pressure

Allegra and high blood pressure should be a concern for people already struggling with hypertension. But first…

What Is Allegra?

Allegra is the brand name for fexofenadine hydrochloride. It is used to counteract the effects of histamine giving relief to the symptoms associated with certain allergies.

Histamine is a chemical that indirectly causes familiar allergic reactions such as…

  • Sneezing
  • Itchy and watery eyes
  • Swelling in the nose lining

When histamine is released it attaches to cells that have histamine receptors. This attachment causes the release of other chemicals that are responsible for causing those annoying allergy symptoms.
Allegra works by blocking one type of histamine receptor.

Here’s a question for you…

Are you sick and tired of just not feeling great?

Anxiety? Or not sleeping well? Or joint pain? Or low energy? Or poor digestion? Or weight gain? Or stress? Why do so many people suffer from these symptoms and others? Those nagging health issues that seem so difficult to define.

Did you know that these health problems – as well as more serious chronic diseases – can be the result of …

Allegra And High Blood Pressure

One connection between Allegra and high blood pressure involves particularly the use of Allegra-D. In addition to the antihistamine fexofenadine, Allegra-D includes a decongestant – pseudoephedrine, which relieves nasal congestion.

Decongestants like pseudoephedrine work by constricting blood vessels. Very often high blood pressure is caused by constricted or clogged blood vessels as in the case of coronary heart disease. By further constricting blood vessels a decongestant can add to an existing blood pressure problem.

Pseudoephedrine may also counteract the antihypertensive effects of many drugs such as mecamylamine, methyldopa, or reserpine.

If you have high blood pressure or are taking any antihypertensive drugs you should be concerned about the connection between Allegra and high blood pressure. Long-term high blood pressure puts excess strain on your heart and cardiovascular system often leading to…

Though doctors do not always know the cause of a patient’s hypertension there are medications that can help. If your doctor prescribes them then please take them. You can also help lower your blood pressure by adopting some lifestyle changes.

Take your high blood pressure seriously. If your heart is already working hard because of high blood pressure then taking Allegra-D can put you at greater risk.

Consider This Important Note

Long-term high blood pressure is a serious concern. If your doctor has prescribed medications to lower your blood pressure then it is important that you take them. But there are natural substances that can help in your battle against heart disease and particularly high blood pressure.

Omega-3 is well known for its ability to counteract coronary heart disease. In fact the American Heart Association recommends high Omega-3 intakes to anyone with high triglycerides or coronary heart disease. But Omega-3 has also been shown to have a positive effect on blood pressure.

Also, Fish Peptides have been shown to possess ACE inhibiting properties. For many people fish peptides have become a natural alternative to ACE inhibiting drugs. If ACE inhibitors help you fish peptides might be a good alternative to drug therapy.
