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?

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.
