Welcome to HCM

You have Essentiale Hypertension,for which you are taking Ramipril H 2.5 mg and Metoprolol 50 mg

I hpoe your BP is under control with these medicine,Yes Ramipril can cause a side effect dry cough that is why your doctor stopped the Ramipril. But You have haziness in right lower zone which could be Pnemonia ?Infective for which you have been given Antibiotics and cough supressant it should subside with time. Even Metoprolol is cardioselective betablocker may induce brochospasm if it there check with your physician. If need for control of BP is there may be given ARB drugs eg. Losartan.

But there are few thing you must check some times drycough induced by Ramipril responds to Aspirin.

are you smoker if yes stop it.

dry cough may respond to syp levodropropizine and chlorpheniramine maleate syrup.
