 1  High Blood Pressure I got a lump in my throat/swollen throat the day after I started taking this. Then within 2 or 3 Days a horrible cough, chest burning and my ear completely stopped up and I got an earache. Finally got fed up and quit. Hopefully the throat lump and cough clear up soon. Lowered BP but unreasonable side effects. Dr. did not seem familiar with side effects. Thank goodness for Google. Geez. F 50 7 days

 4  High blood pressure Have not had any effects so far. We tested Altace (low dosage) for a year, with no results on lowering BP. I was, at the time retaining water. Once we added a water pill, BP dropped to normal and is still in normal range. Wondering about long term effect? Feeling stiff joints? Old age or long usage? F 64 10 years

 4  Heart Failure All of them listed except a cough. I have found that the side effects creep up on you slowly but wear off after a few hours I take mine at night and so I sleep for the first 8 hours when I get up I feel like I have the flu plus often depressed anxious or restless around 3 pm I start to feel normal and fine in the evening and then I go through the cycle again. At first it scared me but iv learnt to live with the horrible effects as my heart has really come on in leaps and bounds even to the surprise of my medical team. Please do not be put off by ny experience Ramipril is a wonderful drug it has improved my quality of life no end. I usually try to distract myself untill they pass.i keep hoping my body will get used to them and I know an awful lot of people who get little or no side effects. F 59 2 years

 2  High bp, plus Kidney function GFR60 Started on 1.25 which had no effect on bp. Raised by a series of stages to 7.5mg. This not only caused dizziness, and a nasty dry cough at night, but water retention and a drop in GFR to 46. This is particularly worrying as it is supposed to support kidney function. Also, bp still not controlled. No good effects from Ramipril. F 64 2 years

 1  below normal ejection fraction Dizziness,shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, tightness in chest,extreme fatigue, debilitating lower back spasms with pain in both hips as well Cardiologist told me that 2.5 mg is the lowest dose available,which I've since found out is a flat out lie.I stopped taking this poison 5 days ago & I'm STILL having the side effects that I listed. It helped with lowering my "high" BP a bit (130/90) but the side effects cancel out any benefits. F 54 18 days

 3  MILD HYPERTENSION UNEXPLAINED LOWER BACK PAIN. HEADACHES AS WELL. DISCUSSED WITH DOCTOR MANY TIMES AND HE KEPT TELLING ME IT WAS BECAUSE OF MY AGE AND "HALF THE POPULATION HAS BACK PAIN". I DECIDED TO STOP TAKING ALTACE AND WITHIN 2 DAYS BACK PAIN EASED, WITHIN 5 DAYS BACK PAIN WAS ALMOST 100% GONE. I AM CONVINCED ALTACE CAUSED MY DISCOMFORT. UNFORTUNATELY MY BP WENT UP TO 140/92 SO AM NOW TAKING ALTACE EVERY OTHER DAY TO SEE IF I CAN LOWER BP BUT AVOID PAIN. WILL BE SEEING DOCTOR TO DISCUSS AGAIN. IT DOES KEEP MY BP AROUND 125/80 SO THAT PART WORKS BUT THE BACK PAIN AND HEADACHES ARE A PROBLEM. NO DOUBT THE DRUG WORKS BUT IS THE DISCOMFORT WORTH IT? WILL BE SEEING MY DOCTOR (WHO IS NOT OPEN MINDED TO CHANGE) AND ALSO GOING TO SEE A NATUROPATH DOCTOR WHO IS OPEN TO NATURAL MEDS AND SEE IF SHE CAN HELP. I'M FED UP WITH THE HEADACHES AND BACK PAIN.

 2  High Blood Pressure Felt tired and extremely anxious. Coughing all the time. Extreme water retention (had to take a water pill). Didn't control my blood pressure at all. Changed pharmacies and the second pharmacy didn't carry ALTACE so they switched me to RAN RAMIPRIL 5mg. (supposedly the same as ALTACE) ... and surprisingly I have had no side effects since. Plus it controlled my blood pressure!! F 55 3 months

ALTACE  (RAMIPRIL):  Ramipril is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Ramipril is also used to improve survival after a heart attack. It may also be used in high risk patients (such as patients with heart disease/diabetes) to help prevent heart attacks and strokes. This medication may also be used to treat heart failure in patients who have had a recent heart attack. Ramipril is an ACE inhibitor and works by relaxing blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
