I have been on 40mg Benicar for over a year and have had a chronic cough similar to a sinus related cough. At times, the coughing wakes me up and to avoid waking up my wife, I go to the farthest point in the house to clear my throat, or simply move to the couch. My health is good, chest X-rays, and other respiratory tests are all clear. Taking Mucinex every day and nasal rinses seem to help, but not entirely. As of today, I have started taking Benicar in the morning, instead of night time to see if I can get some relief.
I cannot take anything with HCT due to severe reaction to it. However, straight Benicar seems to help control my hypertension. Has anyone else had the same experience?
