High & Low Blood Pressure board

My Lotrel cough took at least a month to go. I also have allergies, so that probably made it worse. An ACEI cough is dry and unproductive.

If your blood pressure is only borderline, it probably wouldn't hurt to go off of it for a month or two and see if your cough goes away. If so, then start back on Lisinopril and see if your cough comes back and how quickly.

Most people who get an ACEI cough go on to try ARBs which are less likely to produce a cough. Sometimes just changing the ACEI will work though. Lotrel has benazepril hydrochloride which made me cough, now I take captopril which doesn't (or at least not much).
