Hi all, before Christmas i took myself off Amlodipine because of horrendous side effects ( which were all the side effects mentioned on here put together... (had been on 5 mg for a fortnight then 10mg for a week ) now having been to the Dr (for torn ligaments in my arm) they 'insisted' on taking my BP which I didn't real want and given me a prescription for Ramipril. I just feel like I am being pushed into this and the thought of yet another set of side effects is causing me more stress not less ( and I am pretty damn stressed already).
Is Ramipril safe?( if it is why would there be a need for a blood test to see how it affects my kidneys? that makes me dubious....my kidneys are fine lol ) . I know the Drs are trying to help people, but it just seems that they dish out tablets without even asking WHY my blood pressure might be sky high at the moment (worry about finances, work, etc)
Any thoughts welcome!
