    Has anyone out there had a bad cough as a side effect of taking Lisinopril? I have been on this med since August and have had a cough for about the same amount of time. I have been to see my DR 3 times and have been on different antibiotics, and several cough syrups. NOTHING has helped me. I guess I should have done some homework of my own, but I did not know anything of Lisinopril having cough as a side effect, until someone passed it on to me here on WebMD. My doctor said absolutely nothing about it at my visits either. Since learning of this side effect and nothing else I have tried seem to work, I have quit the Lisinopril. It has only been 3 days but there has been no change whatsoever in my cough it is still HORRIBLE!! It is affecting my family's sleep and it is affecting work as I am on the phone alot and I get 'fits' of coughing (even as I type this). Is there NE1 out there who might have any input in this area? It begins with an extreme dry sensation in my throat, following with about a minute or two uncontrollable coughing. I am 35 years old, used to be an occasional smoker (which I have quit) and have no other health problems. DR took a chest X-Ray which showed no signs of anything there. Please help!
