Claritin and Blood Pressure

Claritin and Blood Pressure: Is There a Connection?

Many heart patients are worried about the connection between Claritin and blood pressure. Should they be concerned? 

Claritin combines antihistamines and decongestants to relieve symptoms associated with allergies. Antihistamines block the effects of histamine (a substance naturally produced by your body). Histamine can cause…

  • Itching
  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes

Decongestants like phenylephrine, and pseudoephedrine produce a narrowing of blood vessels which leads to the clearing of nasal congestion. 

A common cause of high blood pressure is the narrowing of blood vessels such as with coronary heart disease. As blood vessels become clogged or narrowed the heart must pump the blood at greater force to push it through.

Long-term high blood pressure damages the heart and cardiovascular system. If left untreated it could lead to…

Though doctors do not always know the cause of a patient’s hypertension there are medications that can help. 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 Claritin can put you at greater risk.

Here’s a question for you…

Are you sick and tired of just not feeling great?

Are there health issues – in addition to your heart health – that concern you? Like…

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 …

  • Your body holding on to too many toxins?
  • And chronic inflammation?
  • And pH and blood sugar imbalance?
  • And your elimination organs not working well?
  • And poor nutrition?
  •  And foods that stress your system?
