Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Yes there are many antihypertensive medicines which would not cause cough at all like calcium channel blockers- amlodipine, diltiazem, centrally acting alpha2 agonists-clonidine, ARBs- Losartan, Telmisarten.
These medicines need a physicians decisions after initial investigations for fitness before you decide to start them.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
