I was on Attacand for three years. I suffered burning mouth syndrome during this time as well as a persistent cough. To prove that it was causing this problem, I changed to Calcium Channel Blocker Medications and the coughing and BMS stopped but found the CCB's to have worse side effects, such as severe headaches , flushing and palpitations. I gave up and reverted back to Atacand and consequently have the persistent dry cough back. Any suggestions. Thank you.
