Good stuff, but it's not for everybody!

Pros:Good decongestant

Cons:Raises blood pressure

I work at a local medical center. One of the questions that we ask is, "What medications are you taking--both prescription and non?" Here lately, I have noticed that out of the patients I check in who are taking over-the-counter medication for sinuses, a growing number of them list Sudafed among their medications.

Most of these people tell me that Sudafed normally works for them, but this time, it's just not enough to do the trick. It has been many years since I have personally used Sudafed. Since I work at a medical center, I have the advantage of accessibility to see a doctor and get a prescription decongestant, but from what I observe, Sudafed seems to be a fairly good medication.

Although Sudafed works well, it's not for everybody. Sudafed has a decongestant in it, and decongestants raise your blood pressure. I have seen this first hand at the medical center in which I work. I will ask people for a list of medications they are taking and oftentimes, they will say that they aren't taking any. After taking their blood pressure, it may be a little elevated. At that point in time, when I ask if they have been taking Sudafed or anything else over-the-counter, they will reply with something like, "Oh, yeah, I did take that today."

Because Sudafed and other products containing decongestants can raise the blood pressure, people with hypertension (high blood pressure), shouldn't take them. Even if someone has hypertension, but it's borderline and diet controlled, it is still a good idea to avoid this. For anyone who has problems with their blood pressure, it would be wise for them to consult with a physician or pharmacist before taking any medication for sinus or congestion.

For those people who don't have problems with blood pressure, maybe you should give Sudafed a chance! If you can catch the symptoms early enough, it might be possible to avoid a trip to the doctor and a round of antibiotics. Who knows? I may be worth a try!
