Fosinopril review by 62 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   High Blood Pressure
Dosage & duration:   20 mg taken daily for the period of 1 year
Other conditions:   hypothryroid, osteopena
Other drugs taken:   Synthroid, Fosamax
Reported Results
Benefits:   Blood pressure was controlled with the same dose as the former drug I used, MiCARDIS. My insurance would not cover it and I started using fosinopril. I didnt think I had adverse effects from it until someone pointed out my dry constant cough.
Side effects:   I developed a dry cough and it seemed to get persistently worse as months went by. I didnt realize the cough could be a side effect from the drug, but as soon as I replaced it with Benicar, the symptons disappeared.
Comments:   I took the drug once daily in the morning and outwardly I felt no discomfort at all. Blood pressure was controlled. I took this drug approximately one year before starting Benicar and losing the symptom of coughing.
