Currently taking Lopressor 25 mg, I've been getting this terrible dry cough. Pharmacist and cardia say thats not a symptom, but I am almost certain this med is causing this cough. I don't have a cough when it's not in my system. And I have a cough until it starts wearing off.
Lopressor is a beta blocker and does not cause dry cough as a side effect. However, wheezing and dyspnea have been reported in about 1 of 100 patients taking Lopressor. Wheezing in turn can cause cough, so check with your doctor to rule out this. It can be detected by spirometry.
