ACE inhibitor question

  1. I have a question about taking an ACE inhibitor. This past year I had to have my right kidney removed due to a tumor engulfing 2/3 of the kidney. It was non-cancerous. I've been taking Verapamil for several years for HTN. I'm wondering now if I should also be on an ACE inhibitor to protect my remaining kidney. My last Creat was 1.2 and my BP so far has been 120-130/70's. I've been on an ACE in the past but didn't like having the cough. Any suggestions?

    You should discuss any medication with your doctor.
