From this study (2 years ago):
taking olmesartan 20 + amlodipine 5mg
cough reated with steroids , no relief
From this study (5 years ago):
I have a cough and I believe it is from taking Benicar 20 mg. It started last Spring and thought it was caused by allergies. The coughing continued all Summer and has gotten somewhat better but still have a cough.
From this study (5 years ago):
I was told to use pepcid ac for acid reflux to relieve the chronic cough I have. The cough is not stemming from the benicar as this is the best ARB for me.
