Dry throat and mouth and no saliva to swallow and cough only at night and take zestril (lisinopril). I take ranitidine at hs. What is wrong?
Night cough: Your cough at night may be a symptom of gerd. I would stop the zestril (lisinopril) for 2 days. If the cough is still present, it is not due to it and re-start it.

If you cough goes away after stopping zestril (lisinopril), see your doctor about starting another med for bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
