Since it gave me more lung congestion, my doctor took me off coversyl. Will all blood pressure medicine give me congestion? Thanks.

In brief: No

Some antihypertensives will cause a dry cough (ace inhibitors, like coversyl), but not truly "congestion" with mucus, etc.
. You should not have this symptom with other drugs for high blood pressure if they are not ace inhibitors.
