I just started taking Enalapril Maleate 5 mg 20 days ago. This is the first BP medicine that has been prescribed to me. On day 7, I was experiencing a dry cough daily. On day 17, I developed a sore throat, laryngitis and I was coughing up lots of flem. On day 18 and 19, my hands became very swollen. On day 20, my Dr. had me stop taking Enalapril Maleate 5mg. I was initially pleased with the medication because my BP dropped to 110/70, but the side effects were too severe to continue with Enalapril.

Yes, those can be side effects that some people experience, when taking this medication, according to FDA reports. The dry cough is usually a warning sign, once it starts it doesn't tend to go away and you must switch to a different medication. I experienced it with Lisinopril and it drove me crazy. Enalapril always gave me a horrible back ache, it felt like someone was just holding ice against my spine, so I am no longer able to take either one of them.

Did you switch to a different medication? There are many other options available.
