I am a 39yr old male and have been on 5mg Ramipril for about 5 months for hypertension. Since then I have developed mild tinitus, stiff neck, panic attacks, dry throat, difficulty nodding off (I suddenly awaken with a jolt with my heart racing), chronic indegestion and heartburn, and a constant desire to swallow (presumably due to the dry throat). I also get bloated feelings in my chest.
It has been driving me to distraction and I have been worried that there was something seriously wrong with me. Perhaps there is, but having now read this website I shall stay off the Ramipril for a week to see if these symptoms go away. Hopefully all of this is just down to the Ramipril. We shall see and I shall let you know.
Can anybody suggest an alternative to Ramipril (either conventional or alternative) without these awful side effects.
Thank you all for your posts. It is certainly reassuring to know that I'm not alone here.
