I started taking it on a Monday. Wednesday I woke up with a mild choking feeling in my throat. Went to a small clinic and was told to may happen with this pill. And was advised to wait it out. Next night I woke up with an extremely swollen bottom lip. Rush to the ER and had to stay over night. The dry cough was beginning to show up as well.

This medication caused a cough and muscle pain. After several months it affected my sleep a lot. I stopped taking the med and within 48 hours felt so much better. My Dr. has prescribed something else at this point.

I developed a cough after several days of taking but after three weeks was feeling like I had been hit by a Mac truck. I have stopped taking it and after 48 hrs have significantly less pain. My cardiologist has prescribed a different medication.
