Something for people to be aware of anytime you are given a blood pressure drug: ask if its an ACE INHIBITOR. These drugs can result in a horrible dry cough side effect that ends in vomitting - actually put me into a bad attack - ended up seeing another doctor who had it pegged in two visits. Asthmatics are not suppossed to be put on this drug because it actually creates a lung irritant in a small amount of people. :shock: Lucky, aren't I ????? The cycle of cold/ flu/bronchitis/ dry cough kept the problem masked for 5 months. Nice to be able to sleep lying down and for more than 4 hrs before needing a puffer!! I will henceforth always research on the Internet any drug I am ever put on again!! Educating yourself is the first defense!

Very good advice, Pepper. Sorry about your ordeal, but I'm glad you figured things out.
