Side Effects
tingling in my arms, hands, neck and chin. also swollen soft pallet.

Additional Thoughts
Not sure if this is from the medication. I have been on this medication for approx 8 years. I always had a cough from it but never thought it was a big deal. Then approx 2 weeks ago my uvula and soft pallet became swollen and looked infected. I went to the walk in clinic and he gave me an antibiotic. It did get better but it never went totally away. -I then went to my regular physian and he though it might be a reaction to the quinapril I was taking. I have been of it now for 36 hrs and only alittle improvement. Does anyone have any similar experience and will the symptoms go away soon?
