Ramipril for High Blood Pressure

Posted , 5 users are following.

Is anyone using this medication? How are they finding it if so? The side effects look horrendous. I'm already on Amlodipine and this would be an extra tablet. Dr says it's my choice.

    I've been taking it for around ten years with no side effects,

    I take it in conjunction with Amlodipine, Eplerenone, Dabigatran and Bisoproplol.

    What side effects have you heard about? The only one I'm aware of is a dry cough in SOME patients, I'm not one of them and I know several other people taking it with no ill effects.

    I'm mainly worried about the possible side effects of dizziness and blurred vision with regard to having to drive. It also says to avoid bananas, oranges and green leafy veg, all of which I eat a lot of.

    Still, you having had no side effects from it all those years is encouraging. Thanks for your reply.
