I'm always on the hunt for new bp medications. I found this one, but like many other medications, solving one problem has only led to more problems. I'm not sure if it was related to the medication, but I recently came down with bronchitis. Since a side effect of the medication is a dry bough, I'm assuming there was a relation. Now I have to find a new medication for my bp, as well as medication for my bronchitis.

I'm trying to find a medication that will help cure my cough. I ended up finding this medication, but one of the side effects is apparently ... a cough! I guess that would mean this is not my best option, but I'm not sure. Does anyone else know what my best option would be?
