Because of high blood pressure I've been on 2.5 mg Ramipril for some time. BP still little high so GP increased dose to 5.0 mg. Then had constipation and bad back pain. Leaflet listed these as possible side effects. My problems maybe due to some other cause. Anyone else had these side effects from Ramipril  ??

    Quite a lot of people suffer from constipationAre your bowels less active?

    Constipation can cause back pain.

    Are you passing urine more or less frequently?

    Where in the body is your pain?

    That's probably about the only side effects I haven't experienced yet...I've been on the drug for about 4 months now and feel worse than I did before they told me I have hypertension ...when I went to my gp he upped it to 10mg....needless to say I soon had to go back and they lowered the dose ..I am also taking propranolol for migraines which seem to work....I've now had enough..and had hormone testing done etc which has all come back fine...though the consultant is recommending they take me off the ramipril and try something else. . ..

    I take Ramipril 10 and have done for ages.   I get a lot of back pain, just hadn't put it down to Ramipril.   My bahas become weaker and weaker as thyear have gone by and can't do much around the house now.   If you find an alternative l me know.
