Hypertension Medication Might Be Causing Your Nighttime Cough

Hypertension medication might be causing your nighttime cough One of the most common complaints in clinical practice is doctor I have a cough . Usually when a patient presents with a cough, the first thing doctors will look out for is a possible infective cause. Where there is no clear cause for the cough, doctors will treat the cough empirically hoping it will clear by itself. However, there is another cause, often missed by clinicians, which should be excluded. Hypertension is by far the most prevalent chronic illness in South Africa and also the precursor for numerous debilitating conditions such as strokes , blindness, cardiac and vascular disease . Treating hypertension is fairly easy, but sometimes the very drugs that are used to treat one condition might cause another.

    Hi all,
    I bought some cold medication that contains: paracetamol, phenylephrine and guaifenesin. On the leaflet is says "do not take if you have diabetes" (along other medical conditions). I'm wondering - WHY? Is there any specific reason or is this just general "advice"? It's not even in the "take special care" section, but in the big bold "do not take".
    I know that there are other therapies/treatments for cold, I was just curious if there's anything special about those ingredients that can be "bad" for diabetics. I always assumed that if something can affect you BG, it would be in the "take care" section, and the "do not take" section was for serious, potentially life-threatening interactions.

    Click to expand... When I was first diagnosed and picking up my first script for metformin the lovely pharmacist told me from then on to always say I was diabetic when purchasing over the counter medicines, I think it's due to some containing sugar- she did say there sugar free versions of most cough meds for example

    Click to expand... I agree with Kimbo on this, it's probably sugar content. I have just had a hacking cough and because of other medication I have to avoid decongestants so I bought a simple Buttercup syrup and it contained something like 62g of sugar per 5ml spoonful, the box also had a warning for diabetics. Thanks Kimbo I did not know there were sugar free cough medicines I will look into that

    Nagging Dry Cough

    Does anyone else have nagging dry coughs? I've never had problems like this before the diabetes. I drink plenty of water and when the coughs come on, I grab a vitamin C drop which helps quiet it down. These dry coughs hit me sporadically and at the most inconvenient times.
