Coricidin Hbp Cough And Cold (Chlorpheniramine / Dextromethorphan) is a good option to relieve cold symptoms for people with high blood pressure, but it doesn't help with nasal congestion.

  • Coricidin Hbp Cough And Cold (Chlorpheniramine / Dextromethorphan) is a combination medicine that relieves multiple cold symptoms. It's good to use if you have watery eyes, a cough, and a runny nose.
  • Good option for people with high blood pressure since it doesn't contain ingredients that'll raise your blood pressure.
  • The cough medicine (dextromethorphan) works well and has very few side effects.
  • The antihistamine (chlorpheniramine) can help you sleep.
  • Doesn't clear up nasal congestion.
  • If you don't need both of the medications in this combination, you're taking extra medicine and might have extra side effects for no reason.
