Hi, everyone. I've been taking irbesartan for years and have a chronic dry cough. It is really annoying, especially when it wakes me (and my husband) at night. Sometimes I cough up clear sputum (phlegm) but not always. The cough comes on suddenly and sometimes with great intensity and people think I am choking. When I first got high blood pressure I was taking benazepril which made me cough too (it is an ACE inhibitor, like lisinopril, captopril, etc). The cough from irbesartan is not as bad but bad enough.
Hi. Several doctors prescribed Avapro or Ibesartan to me for twenty years. Not one of them ever reviewed it or informed me of the side effect of peripheral neuropathy. It came on so gradually I never noticed that I no longer had any feeling in my feet. My chiropractor discovered it on doing a general check up. That was nearly two years ago and despite seeing several doctors and specialists not one of them has asked me to remove my shoes and actually examined my feet. My cardiac specialist whom I saw to try and find a suitable BP medication replacement openly scoffed when I said my chiropractor had diagnosed me. He said he had never heard of Avapro/Ibesartan causing peripheral neuropathy. He was just rude and in my opinion ignorant. Needless to say he never looked at my feet. Why do Doctors not listen to us when we tell them of our side effects? Would they prescribe this medication to their own mother? I had to give up work my feet were so bad and now have uncontrolled high BP due to not being able to find a replacement medication that works. My savings have run out but I don't know if I could cope with full days on my feet.
