I did get an irritating tickle in the back of my throat and I would have to cough. Sometimes it got so bad I couldn't sleep at night because I would cough to scratch my throat. I also got short of breath on the lisinopril after 3 months, I did as well on benicar with very little activity. So that's an ARB and a ACE that had that side effect on me. Both also would make my pulse race at random times.
I feel I do need something, my BP has been very unpredicatble since I gave birth. I remember they had a hard time getting my pressure down then I went a year with no meds and my BP was fine, one day I had a horrible headache and nausious and my bp was 180/110!
So I don't trust these low readings I am getting
