I'm posting this as it's only seeing this forum that made me aware of how bad and common ACE cough is! I'm fuming that the side effects leaflet said there was a 7-10% of a tickly cough. It started as a tickle once or twice a day and it's got progressively worse so that now I am coughing so violently sometimes I am gagging and have a coughing fit at least every 2 minutes, even through the night. My throat was closing up one day too and my chest felt tight. I haven't slept properly in weeks and can't sleep in bed with my partner it's so bad. If this possible side effect was talked about when it was prescribed I would have known much sooner to stop. I've now stopped but three days later I'm awaiting an improvement which I now read could take months!
I've read medical reports that explain why it causes this cough - why on earth don't they tell you? It's absolutely ruined the last four weeks of my life and everyone in the office hates me!
I just want others to read this before they start taking it.
