Anyone take Altace?

Never had high readings of BP till I started on cholesterol drugs, but now readings are high. Always had about 130-135 over 75-80. Last couple of months readings have been 150-155 over 90-97. Stopped the cholesterol meds. as they had rotten side effects, but dr. put me on Altace, 2.5 mgs for 3 weeks, then if it isn't down to normal have to go to 5 mgs. I have seen a slight inprovement, but nothing earth shattering. How long before U actually see some decent results? Do have a home monitor, Omron self inflateable. Anyone have any problem with this drug? I noticed a little itching for the first 3 days, especailly on my upper back. Thanx for any input.

Re: Anyone take Altace?

I was on Altase for about a year, first 1.25mg, then 2.5mg. I always had an annoying dry cough on the stuff, and it never controlled my BP very well. Hope you have better luck on it than I did.

Re: Anyone take Altace?

That is one of the side effects the dr. said is very common. I have been on it for 12 days and so far my pressure has been down quite a bit. I'm averageing about 129-137 over 78-85. Noticed a bit of itching on my upper back at times, but nothing I can't live with. I am really hopeing this does the trick. Thanx for your input and I will let you know how it goes in the next few weeks.
