Yes, you can take mucinex. The regular Mucinex has guafenesin in it and this is OK with your conditions. If you take the Mucinex D however this has a decongestant in it which can raise BP a little. You would need to have good control of yourBP in order to take the D form.
You can take a half dose and this would help it to have less effect on your BP. It would be a good idea to check your BP response if you take the medicine.
You are welcome!
Tylenol is fine for you to take.
Yes, that is fine.
Just have to be careful with the BP with D version is all...
Right, Mucinex D
So to further clrify IF your BP is well controlled say 135/85 then a few days of a five point elevation is not anything to worry about. If on the other hand your BP is not well controlled say 150/100 then you would not want to take the Mucinex D which might elevate it further. So your baseline control of your BP is an important factor with this.
