Pseudoephedrine - decongestant. Has anyone taken this and seen any adverse reactions in Blood Sugar?

I have not learned how to easily search through previous posts on this site for different groups! Is that possible to search all groups for particular subjects?

Maybe the answer is out there somewhere on Tudiabetes…but in the mean time…has anyone taken this drug? I am still recovering from a crazy head cold and flu and have taken advil…and now Pseudoephedrine. I am not sure if this is bad for us Type 1’s or not good for Dexcom readings? Any experience with this drug?

I hope everyone is feeling better than I am this weekend! take care

Had a horrible sinus infection this past April. The doctor put me on a Z-pack…,pseudoephedrine…and a saline nasal rinse to flush out my sinuses. No problems.

My son has taken it with no effect on his blood sugar. I don’t know if it’s a problem for some but not for us. Hope you feel better soon!
