    I also have been on this prescribed medication for several years, since being diagnosed with HBP, the doctors kept upping the dose, starting out with 10 mg, to 20mg, and now on 40mg of 1 pill/day.

    My systolic has gotten much better, but I continue to have a significantly high diastolic reading. The worst part, though, is the never ending cough. I'm now known at work as "the lady in the corner that never stops coughing". How embarrassing. The coughing also prevents me from getting any decent sleep.

    I started having a bad cough and leg cramps after taking this drug. I knew a cough was a side-effect, so I stopped taking it after about 2 weeks.

This was the first time I ended up in the emergency room. The next time I passed out getti ... Show Full Comment
