Discussions that mention benicar

High & Low Blood Pressure board


After 2 months on Trandolapril I got the cough, starts with a throat tickle and is just horrible.
So I stopped the ACE 4 days ago and started on Benicar.
How long does this cough take to go away, it's keeping me up 1/2 the night ?
Also has anyone experienced continuous ear ringing with ACE I.? I have developed a continuous high pitched sound in my ear ( tinnitus ). Could this be due to the ACE also and will it go away?
I also take 340mg of Verapamil and 12.5 of HCTZ plus the Benecar now.
thanks
