These high blood pressure medications block formation of a hormone that causes blood vessels to narrow, so vessels relax. ACE inhibitors may cause these side effects: A dry, hacking cough that doesn't go away. If you have this side effect, the doctor may prescribe another type of medication.

Not all blood pressure medications cause coughing. Alpha blockers, diuretics, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, vasodilators, direct renin inhibitors, peripheral adrenergic blockers and central agonists don’t list coughing as a side effect. Which high blood medication has the least side effects? The blood medication with the least side effects are Alpha-2 receptor agonists. This blood pressure medication can cause drowsiness or dizziness.

Both of your blood pressure medicines are ACE inhibitors and can cause a persistent cough in susceptible people. We are surprised that your doctor didn’t mention this side effect. A survey of participants on the iGuard.org Web site revealed that only one patient in four on lisinopril had been told that the drug could cause cough.

High blood pressure medications may cause several side effects in patients. A dry, persistent cough is an adverse event that requires discontinuation of the drug. Medications that may induce cough are the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, such as lisinopril, enalapril and ramipril, and angiotensin II receptor blockers, such as candesartan, olmesartan and losartan.
