    Dont worry about it I have been on this for a year now and although I had the cough for the first couple of months I am fine now with no problems.

    Sometimes its not wise to read the side effect as you then just sit and wait for something to happen when it most likely will not. I am on 8mg .

    I have been on Ramipril(10MG) for just over a yr now, had no problems,with them, not everybody gets the side effects and if you do happen to feel that your gonna cough,pop a sweet in your mouth, its a good excuse to have one smile [/b]
