This medication has been easy to use, and has done wonders for my high blood pressure. Although it does have a few minoor side effects, like coughing(dry) and my skin itches. Other than that, I am very pleased with the drug.

Comment from: HJ, 55-64 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: November 29

Been taking this for 2 weeks so its efficacy is still in question. I will know more in a month. The side effects have been miserable,,,extreme dizziness and some flashing pain in my right temple from time to time. Will give it another week and if the dizziness does not end it will be time to find a new drug for my hypertension.

The Altace lowered my blood pressure substatially and had no obvious side effects except one. I suddenly had severe reactions to lobster. A well regarded allergist did testing on me and concluded that the Altace brought about a secondary allergy to that particular food. it has happened numerous times and only to lobster. I've decided to forego this favored treat

My doctor recently took me off Altace due to cough for 9 months. She acted a though this was a common complaint, Has anyone else had a similar experience? I have taken med for over 6 yr with no problem.

I have been on this drug for 3 years for prevention of kidney disease from diabetes. I think it has helped, although my diabetes is basically under control. My blood pressure has always been low normal and remains so with the altace. I'm a happy camper right now.
