    Yes been there. We are all different so you will no doubt have to give it a bit of time to see if  the symptoms go away. But beware, if you start to feel that they are getting you ready to sit in the corner of an old folks home and keep quiet and plain walls start to be interesting, its not you, its the Ramipril.

    Claire - I recently tried Ramipril for the second time after being taken off it some years ago very quickly following what appeared to be an adverse reaction.  May have been a coincidence but I vowed never to take it again.  However, recently, to please my consultant, who told me it would be protective for my sole reduced functioning kidney, I agreed to try it again.  Stuck it for a month but, like you, had bouts of nausea, off my food and generally felt below par.  I felt quite disturbed yesterday when reading an article in the press about the number of hospital patients dying from kidney disease mainly caused by dehydration, with the Professor involved going on to say that among other causes of kidney failure in hospital was Ace Inhibitors.  I hope you find that you settle on it but, if not, do ask for a change to one that suits you.

    Been there and had to stop because my symptons were that it made all my bones ache and I could hardly walk. After 10 minutes I was in agony. As soon as I stopped they disappeared.  This drug may help but it certainly has a lot of side effects.

    I didn't realise there were so many side effects with Ramipril.  I had just the cough and that was bad enough. A change to Losartan though and it disappeared.

      Jane - I'm on Losartan Potassium 50 now, together with Diltiazem.  Slightly high creatinine levels from the former and swollen ankles from the latter....otherwise ok!!!!
