Morning all

Just a thought for those of you probably new to meds after H/A ( I think most with a a history of heart problems already know this ) but anyway, just a thought !

So for many people that take an ace inhibitor like Ramipril or any of this type that end in PRIL and get a dry cough that won’t go away then ask your GP to change your med to an ARB substitute like LOSARTAN or any ARB ending in TAN

I hope like me the cough will go away it takes time maybe a month and the ARB has roughly the same properties

Have a good day

I've recently been swapped from Ramipril to Entresto. My dry cough seems to have changed to a wet one. It's my hay fever season though...
