The ACE Cough

It happens so often, it has a name. It’s called the ACE cough. The ACE cough is actually a problem where people take anti-hypertensives, or blood pressure medications, called the ACE antagonists. These Angiotensin Converting Enzyme antagonists actually have one big side effect. They can cause people to get a staccato cough, in a way where they repeat it over and over again. If you’re on a blood pressure medication and have that cough, you should check it out with your doctor. You may have the ACE cough.
