Can Blood pressure medication damage your lungs ..??

I was on blood pressure medication for about 4 1/2 months which made me cough almost from day one, not a violent cough just a dry persistent cough, since I've stopped my meds of course with my doctors permission, the coughing has stopped but i'am still having to clear my throat all the time, i've been off bp meds for about 3 1/2 weeks, could the bp medication i was taking have damaged my lungs....???? has anyone had this problem...

Apparently, yes. But, it doesn't mean that's what you have. It could maybe have caused you to have an overreactive upper airway, or it's being caused by something else as well.

Question things in your environment, fragrance, allergies, seasonal changes, new bedding, toothpaste, food....etc.

Do you happen to have sinus issues as well?

What med were you on?

Are you taking other meds? and are you on cholesterol meds?

Are you taking other supplements?

Are you a smoker?
It's all a matter of perspective!
