On Ace inhibitors, have cough triggered by dryness and burning sensation in through, tickling before intake of medicines. How can I avoid this?

Hi Dr. I have a dry spot that seems to just come out of nowhere and then I start to cough , for about 5 mins. Sometimes I have a burning sensation that comes into my throat which also makes me cough. It happens when I eat also. I have started an ACE inhibitor and was told that it may cause this symptom but would the cough be of this nature? Also I did have this dry throat and sometimes tickle for quite a while before I started the med. Now it s a lot worse. Hope you can shed some insight on this. Thank you Judy

Hi Judy,

I appreciate your concern. ACE inhibitors are known to cause dry cough which can be troublesome to some patients. I suggest you discuss with your physician who may consider changing the medicine. Please do let him know about your burning throat sensation so that he can examine and advise you for it.

Wishing you an early relief from this cough.
