I've been taking Lisinopril 2.5 mg for 4 months. It's working well in lowering my BP, but I've developed the dreaded cough and have swollen ankles (but not excessively). The cough is getting worse and effecting a lot of my activities, and sleep.
I'm going to ask my GP to change to an ARB medication. I'd like to know which ARBs folks take? Which ones work best, and which have the fewest side effects. Hubby takes Olmesartan 10 mg and has mentioned sore knees. He also takes medication for Type 2 diabetes, raised cholesterol and cancer drugs, so I'm unsure if the sore knees relate to his BP med or anything else he takes.
I'm female age 71 years. I'd be grateful for any feedback from others.
