So now after over 2 months of coughing which I attribute to 2 different antihypertensive medications, my doctor has started me on the 3rd one plus hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) to counteract the possible increase in edema which may be a side effect of Norvasc. I already have edema of the legs so she warned me to watch for increased edema (duh!) I hope I can find something that works without causing untoward side effects. This cough has come back on full force and people at work are concerned about me again as I can't seem to stop coughing once I start. I will have to bring reg cough syrup, cough drops, Kleenex and plenty of liquids an also my asthma inhaler.
