I have been taking Altace for 9+ years and in the past 2 years developed a chronic cough and shortness of breath & wheezing, especially on exertion this past year. My doctor took me off Altace and has me using Mylan-Losartan Potassium 50 MG OD about a month ago. No noticeable improvement yet.

I have been taking tamsulosin for about two years now. I've noticed a more pronounced heart beat in my abdomen that grows more prominent going down toward my belly button. I have a sneaking suspension I have an abdominal anurism that this has been caused by tamsulosin.
I discovered some reports and studies in rats regarding the affects upon the prostrate and aorta.
Didn't understand anything because of all the medical jargon. I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow after having a CAT scan done two days ago.
