Our expert says:
The cough associated with Lisinopril may last for several months. If it is still present after 6 months, it may be another cause. Common causes are chronic hay fever with post-nasal drip and acid coming up the food pipe (GORD). Undiagnosed asthma is another common cause of chronic dry cough. Given that high blood pressure and these other conditions are very common, both may often co-exist. You should discuss this with your medical practitioner and make sure that you've tried therapy or excluded some of these. In the meanwhile, he can advise on over the counter cough syrups that you can use that contain dextromethorphan. There are other options but you can discuss this with your healthcare practitioner.
