My doctor prescribed Lisinopril 20 mg. and then increased my dosage to 40 mg. It is wonderful! My BP dropped from 170's to 130's (top #)..But, this cough I have is AWFUL!!!! I speak for a living, and these bouts of coughing with gross cough-ups of clear drainage is inconvenient. At night, I have awakened to a pillow covered in SNOT! Oh, My Stars! I am asking my doctor to change to another medication. I love my improved BP, but can't continue with these cough spasms. My colleagues look at me as if I have the plague - been coughing since I was on Lisinopril...thought I had a cold...no cold remedies worked...I don't have a cold...it's this Cursed Lisinopril!
