I am none smoker, I have high BP which is treated with Ramapril (2.5 mg), No shortness of breath, no fever and no wheezing experienced. I have felt a little light headed. This is at it s worst at night when laying down.
Since how long are you on Ramipril?
Just finishing first course of 28 days
Did the cough start after starting to take Ramipril?
Yes, however I did have a similar cough in 2012
Cough is a very common side effect of Ramipril.
I think that you should ask your doctor to change your medication from Ramipril to a drug belonging to the angiotensin receptor blockers like losartan or valsartan etc.
Ok thanks I shall discuss this with my GP.
