How to help a cough if you have high blood pressure?

So my mom has this cough and she's tried tons of medicines but don't seem to work. She recently bought that Mucinex DM or whatever and that didnt help either. Any suggestions? Also, my mom has high blood pressure so if you suggest any medicines it has to be a medicine that high blood pressure people can take. Thanks.

You should get her to try to take a spoon of honey if she cant take it straight try disolving it in a cup of tea the honey eases off the cough, or get or pharmacist to give you some cough suppressant, Guaifenesin, the only approved expectorant on the market,
Also Delsym庐 12 hour cough suppressant go to its web site good stuff too

Plain Robitussin (not Robitussin DM or anything like that, just plain). If the cough doesn't go away within the next day or so, she really needs to see her doctor to see what's going on.
I like Halls Breezers they take away the tickle that makes me cough and they aren't real medicine so it won't hurt her. If it get too bad she should phone her doctor for other recommendations.
Actually it may be your moms high blood pressure medicine that is making her cough discuss this with your docter as this is a side affect of some antihypertensives. But if it is just a cold check with the local pharmacy they have some cough syrup over the counter specifically for high blood presure clients. Good Luck
Have her pick up Coricidin HBP (I hope I spelled that right) cough syrup at your local drug store. It is made especially for people with high blood pressure, and is completely safe for them to use. An ongoing cough can be a sign of a more serious problem, if the cough has been going on for an extended period of time, you should consult a doctor.
Here are a few simple home remedies that will help to overcome cough. Have honey in a hot drink before bed time.To relieve fits of coughing due to dryness in the throat, suck a few pepper corns. Check out http://useinfo6.blogspot.com/ for more remedies and information.
