This question has also been asked and answered here: Alternatives to Lisinopril? The cough & headaches are driving me insane!
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 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,
Hi. I had this same thing happen to me. After taking lisinopril for about three years I developed a cough that the Drs couldn't figure out. After several rounds of antibiotics and steroids and even being tested for asthma it was discovered that I had an allergy to ace inhibitors. My cough cleared up waiting days of stopping lisinopril.
