throat tickle

I was on Quinapril for just a few days and developed an intense tickling in my throat that kept making me cough/gag and my eyes would tear profusely. It's worse at night, and wakes me up from sleep several times a night. So I went to my ENT who said it was a reaction to the ace inhibitor. He advised me to get off the medication, which I did one week ago. I was only on the ace inhibitor 11 days in total, but still have this annoying tickle in my throat. I actually gagged so hard this morning that I threw up! How long till it goes away?

Re: throat tickle

Shelly, even though you only took it for eleven days, it was enough time for the medicine to build up in your system. As it wears off, you will start to see improvements in how often your cough. Some people see improvements after a few days, others may take longer. Since it has been a week since you stopped taking it, you should begin to see a difference in the strength of the cough and how often you need to cough soon, if not, talk to your doctor. In the meantime, try peppermint candy or Halls and see if they help.
