    A common side effect for angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors is coughing, which is listed in the pharmacy inserts that come with the medication. ACE inhibitors are commonly prescribed for high blood pressure. If you notice a chronic cough after you beginning taking ACE inhibitors contact your provider to report the side effect. You may need to be changed to another medication to manage your blood pressure.
