Re: [IP] Vasotec (Enalapril) cough

I was on Lotensin a number of years ago.

I had the cough that was so bad, I couldn't even get through a meal  
and if I did I almost 'lost' it in the after hour.

Doc sent me to ENT, respiratory and everything, but it was my  
PHARMACIST who touched onto it and said the production of bradykinin  
was the culprit.
Went to an ARB Cozaar and have had NO trouble and in fact the  
microalbumin has remained below 9 ever since the change. Before it was  
at 14-19.
