11/01   Does anyone have any experience with nasal decongestants causing
        an increase in blood pressure? Has this happened to anyone here?
        \_ That's very common, and you're often warned not to take the stuff
           when you've got blood pressure problems.
        \_ They can interfere with oral contraceptives.  Found that one out
           the fun way....
           \_ really? you got a kid because of a nasal decongestant?
        \_ My coworker's having the same issue right now from Benedryl.
           \_ What's going on with him, specifically? -a scared op
              \_ She has a separate major health issue right now, so her
                 health is being monitored constantly.  Since she started
                 taking Bendryl again for allergy, her blood pressure has
                 gone through the roof.  She's currently taking a prescription
                 drug to lower it.  For her case, it's most likely because
                 she's taking Benedryl with all her other medicines for her
                 health issue that's triggering it.

11/10   What's the best way to get medical leave (how do I find
        a doctor who is willing to help you in any way)?
        \_ Do you have a good relationship with your personal physician?
           If not, do you know any physicians as friends or family friends?
           That would be a good place to start.
           \_ Crap, no I don't. Ok, is there another way?
