That cough is a well-known side-effect for almost any of the ACE inhibitors. 
I was 8 years on Vasotec without a cough, then nephrologist put me on 
Captopril. I coughed until I gagged and threw up, lost 7# in 10 days, could 
tolerate eating only cream-style corn, bacon, white bread and milk. Another 
kidneyologist put me on a combo of ARBs and the cough went away. I can no 
longer tolerate any ACE inhibitors after that. YMMV
