    Default ACE inhibitor induced cough


    I don't see that the ACE inhibitors have their own code in the adverse effects, so I would go with 972.6; Adverse effects other antihypertensive agents; 786.2 for the cough; and E942.6, antihypertensive agent therapeutic use causing adverse effect.

    Have a great weekend!
