I think I would contact my doctor and discuss this with him, I was on this for a short time one of the first thing my physician told me was if I developed a cough to contact her and she would change the medication and the symptoms should leave, I have not heard of this much time transpiring but just to be sure I would discuss this with the prescribing doctor Take good care,

Cough is a common side effect of this medication and this side effect would manifest itself at the beginning of your treatment, not 3 years later, this is my personal opinion.

Potential side effects list for future reference:

I suggest you contact your Dr. and inform him or her regarding this situation.-

All the best,

I have 2 Dr. opinions, one says it happens "all the time" manifesting cough months and years later. I expect the 2nd Dr. to tell me it "never" happens. (spoke to Dr.'s assistant, not Dr. yet) There is a post on this website that indicates cough started after 7 years...

wow, I knew b/p meds could cause a cough, just didn't realize it could come on years later, but doesn't supprise me. Look at all the new vaccines that are suppose to be great and then a few years later they find out they are not so great. I'm one of those mothers who didn't give her child vaccines.
