Discussions that mention vasotec

High & Low Blood Pressure board


I've tried in the past Cardizem, Toprol, Maxide, Vasotec, Diovan. All the different classes of bp drugs. None really got my bp to the right place; all had side effects. Of late I've been taking 25 mg of HCTC. Today the doctor added 2.5 (and 5 if that doesn't work) mg of altace.

Other than the cough, what side effects have people had using this drug?
evelyn,

For me, the drug class (enalapril) produced only the cough as I reacall, and really didn't do much to improve my BP. If you coughed from the Vasotec, my guess is that you will from the Altace also.
