My blood pressure rapidly returned to a healthy range within 2 weeks of beginning this drug. However, I have developed a constant and very annoying cough as a result of taking this medication.

I developed a dry cough that interrupts my sleep. I am constantly fatigued and a going to ask the doctor to change to something. I am taking the generic form, so I don't know if the name brand would be different.
