Pearinda Drug Information

I would like to know can Pearinda & Ciplavasc 5mg cause any coughing, insomnia ! ## Hello, Bev! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. The cough is most likely caused by the Perindopril in the Pearinda, it is very well known to cause that type of problem. However, it's hard to say which might be causing the insomnia. Have you consulted your doctor? The cough usually doesn't go away, so you'll need to be switched to a different medication. ## Can I take Pearinda 8 mg in the evening? I have no energy during the day and wonder if it could be a side effect. I also have a bad skin rash on my chin. Never had a problem with my skin. So tired of going to drs and just getting more pills.
