I take two extended release capsules 240mg 1 every 12hrs. I serm to have fevelopef persistent cough, nasal congestion like if i had a sore throat and cold. I was tsking only 1 per day but dr. Wants me to take 2. I think 2 helps, but ive just been taking 2 every day now for a few months. I read that these can be sire effects. Any thoughts? Thanks.

That is a very high dose, when I was taking 240mg a day I seemed to have fluid in my ears and had to get a hearing aid. After an ablation the meds were stopped and my hearing improved but now I'm back on Diltiazem my hearing has gone again 😮 so maybe it causes congestion.
