ACE cough?

Has anyone here experience a persistant and annoying cough when taking ace inhibitors?

I was put on Lispronil last month at urgent care for blood pressure (my average of 8 readings was 240/130 or so) and while my BP is down I have been having cough issues...uncontrollable coughing to the point of puking...nothing stops it until the fit ends on its own.

I am also a wedding photographer...this cannot happen at a wedding, clearly.

Anyone have any luck getting over it? Tips for suppressing it? Even throat numbing sprays have not worked so far :/
