Lopressor cough

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.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

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.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
