I have been wondering if Ramipril was responsible for my symptons and decided to surf for more information.
My GP changed my medication from Atenolol to Ramipril. I started with a persistent dry cough and then a permanent sensation of heartburn. Soon I fouind that if I coughed too hard I started retching, but wasn't sick. Then I had spells where my mouth filled with saliva as if I was going to be sick. I was either swallowing like mad or hanging over a sink spittting it out. It only lasted a minute or so but often ended with more retching. Very embarrasing if you are in company. The medication to combat these symptoms works really well, but gives me diarrheoa.
Routine blood tests have also shown slight anaemia.I also itch quite a bit and my feet are swollen.
Has anyone else had these side effects?
I'm going back to the GP and will insist on being taken off this medication.
