I took a total of 8 lisiniprol pills (last one over a month ago). I have had the horrible nagging, gut wrenching cough side effect. Is it possible for this side effect to last this long after stopping the drug? Also what can I do to help this go away? It feels like it is destroying my daily life! The cough starts at any time and totally consumes me for a few minutes...can't talk or get my breath. It wakes me up many times a night. I cannot believe it is still in my system but I am NOT sick with a cold or infection of any kind. I know my doctor will want to put me on another drug and I do not want that. My BP was not that bad to begin with! Any advice is greatly appreciated as I am totally worn out from this....sorry I ever took this drug!!View Thread
Thanks for all the info - very informative. My only concern is why this would happen now at age 70 and never before. As soon as I coughed in front of my health care provider, he was the one that asked if I was taking BP meds? That is how I made the connection. Thanks againView Thread
