Discussions that mention vasotec

I coughed for 6 months on enalapril (Vasotec.) Worst experience was in the Metropolitan Opera when I thought people around me were going to string me up. I tried SO HARD not to cough that tears were streaming down my cheeks before I had to crawl over about 10 people and make my exit.
I was afraid the Soprano was going to stop singing mid-aria!
That was the last straw.

Cough took less than a week to stop once I deep-sixed the damned drug.

Personally, I think the incidence of coughing with ACE inhibitors is FAR higher than that reported 20%...my guess is closer to HALF!
