Hi everyone. I have been taking ramipril (2.5mg) for two weeks now and the only side effect is a slight dry tickly cough now and again. I figure that's a fair price to pay for a lowered risk of heart attack or stroke. My BP was 180/120 three months ago, and due to a regimen of diet and exercise, I managed to get it down to 140/110, but the doc said this was still too high and if I was a relative of his he would recommend medication, as the diet and exercise, whilst doing me the world of good, was not lowering the BP enough for his liking. Hence the reason I am on Ramipril.
I have to go and see him again on Thursday afternoon, and I'm wondering if he will increase the dose. I suppose if there is no change in the BP he will.
I'll keep you posted.
