I was recently diagnosed for diabetes and high blood pressure. I was prescribed Ramipril, and little did I know the hell I went through since I started taking the Ramipril. I have been coughing my cage ribs to quake--ing. It siezes my chest so firm and all the muscles clamped around me and it goes on for as long as it wishes until it frees me. I went back to the surgery and was seen by a nurse who said to me it was a virus infection so I went and bought all the cough syrup bottle after bottle both for tickly /dry / and bet me if any was for 'damp cough' I would have bought it too.
It is worse off in the night where I keep all my family awake coughing through the dark, also I had to stop driving for a while because i thought it was the high winds since i do the motor way a lot to work; most embarassing when I then decided to take the bus and the cough triggers everyone starts starring at me as though I fell from space with some rare disease, even got to the stage where I stand by the bus door and get off immediately it starts and leg my remaining journey coughing all the way. I could not stand the eyes of those thinking this man will soon die...what a scary thought from their eyes.
My wife got so concerned and mad and drove me straight to the surgery again after some weeks, demanding this time to see the DOCTOR, who sincerely apologised and confirmed RAMIPRIL was associated with coughing. She then changed my drug to another, and the first night was a great improvement. So far the coughing graph is decreasing and definately can confirm that not everyone is RAMIPRIL made for..but why administer it in the first instance...to kill people through coughs?
I pray no other person/people goes through my kind of experience, seeing this webpage just confirms that RAMIPRIL needs to be re-checked or recalled to determine the right and wrong people it is made for.
