Some of the more common side effects of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor pills are:

  • Cough (0.5-12%)
  • Dizziness (1.3-4.3%)
  • Fatigue (2.0-3.0%)
  • Headache (3.8-6.0%)
  • Rash (1.4-7.0%)

ACE inhibitor pills generally don’t have too many side effects. Most side effects go away if you stop taking the medicine.

Patients who have heart failure may experience additional side effects. Learn more here.

Talk to your doctor if you develop any unwanted side effects. Your doctor can help you decide if ACE inhibitors are still the best option for you.
