My doctor has recently switched me to Lisinopril and Hydrochlorozide and I am experiencing an annoying, persistent cough. I read the printout and spoke with a pharmacist and understand this is a known side effect.

Does this diminish in time? It is very disruptive.


You need to talk to your doctor about changing your medicine.  It is unlikely your cough will get better.  You may be able to take a different drug in the same class, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors), without getting the cough as a side effect.  The cough can take a few weeks to go away once Lisinopril is stopped.
