AZDesertRat is a friend of mine and is right. But there is no law like that in Virginia. The nurse told me that coughing was a big side effect of Ace Inhibitors and I think that is why they didn't put me on anything else. I am on Bumex, a diuretic, for fluid due to pneumonia I had in April and fluid problems somehow connected to GERD.
I need to add Bumex to my list of meds on here.
AZDesertRat, I just found out that Matt has been on Lisinopril now for many months for fluid and it is an Ace Inhibitor, so thank God for that. Whew! I was so worried about him as he has never had the 24 hour urine collection test done. He gets that done in September too.
I wonder if I could try Lisinopril? I would have to stop the Bumex, though. I'll have to ask the endo in September. Matt doesn't have any coughing problems at all.
I'm really at the point of adding supplements and stopping on meds though. I'm just on so very much.
I have hypothyroidism (1953), diabetes type 2 (1976), high cholesterol (1989), gastroparesis (1990), FMS (1995), and GERD (2006). I am these meds for FMS: Prozac 20 mg., Xanax .5 mg., Diclofenac 100 mg., Cytotec 200 mcg. (stomach med to go with Diclofenac), Lortab 10/500 mg. I am also on the other meds for various reasons: Nexium 40 mg., Cytomel 50 mcg., Detrol 2 mg., Reglan 10 mg., Novolog insulin, Novolin N insulin. Also on B12 sublingually, magnesium, Centrum Silver Vitamin, CoQ10, and stool softeners.
