Just been diagnosed with high blood pressure, readings from today was 140/110 and 135/120 and 140/115 so DR has decided to put me on Ramipril 2.5mg to start off. I am 31 years old and 20 stone, currently on Slimming World and lost 8lbs in last 2 weeks, DR advised to keep following the slimming world plan.
All blood tests came back fine, she has advised me I am young, fit and healthy and therefore should be no problem with the medication, got to have a blood test in 6 weeks time to test my kidney function and to wether they need to alter the dosage up.
Can I ask has anyone been on Ramipril and if so did you get any side effects??
DR said it's rare for side effects, apart from light headed for first few weeks and a dry cough
Please any advice would be grateful as I am a very anxious person and hate taking tablets!
