I am taking Lisonipril and Norvasc now after having some bad blood pressure spikes. The Norvasc is a Calcium Channel blocker and seem to be working well. Have hopes of getting off one but you might ask about the CCB types. Frankly I am not sure how they decided what you should be on. I do not get the cough with the Ace that much. Since I have emphysema and cough some anyway it at least is not noticable but Itake before bed so maybe that helps. I would think that it should go away after you stop unless you have irritated your bronchial tubes.
