I take it also and have experienced the constant cough side effect. It has become less prevalent the longer I take the medication. I just keep cough suppressants on hand.

I had the same problem on lisinopril. Dr finally switched me to another medicine and that awful cough went away for me too. And the cough is listed as a side effect. So glad to be rid of it.

emoticon I have take lisinopril and never had a problem. All of our bodies are different, I had a problem with a couple of diabetic meds'. Thanks to weight lost and proper diet, I do not have to take any now. I am down to 20mg a day of the lisinopril. My BP is 120/80 in the am and sometimes lower. I would love to get off of all meds. I don't like taking pills!!!!!

Odd that your Dr. did NOT know about that side effect with liosinopril. Luckily I have never experienced that side effect. Sorry your Pharmacist did not give you a "heads up" either, that is their job to inform.

I had the same problem with Altac, Diovan and one other I can't remember the name of 14 years ago.
I recently suffered a heart attack, and the cardiologist wrote me a prescription for varapremil, and it is the same as Altac. Left message that at his office that I can't take it. I don't want to go that coughing route again.

I had a persistent, violent cough for 11 weeks straight. Got off Lisinopril and switched to a "2nd generation" medication in the same family, and it went away 3 days later and hasn't returned. Doctor put me through two rounds of bronchitis treatment before we figured out what was really happening. It all started when I found out about the Lisinopril Cough on a SP blog and asked the doctor about it. emoticon Doh!

Fitness starts with getting good shoes.
