 2  High blood pressure Went years thinking that there were no side effects until I found this Ask a Patient forum and discovered that there were numerous side effects that I had attributed to other factors. Notable effects have been tingling and numbness in my left fingers and hand. General malaise/fatigue leading to reduced physical activity, and definite drop in libido. While this drug did maintain my blood pressure at adequate levels that satisfied the doctor, and myself, I was however unaware of the costs my body was having to pay for that 'benefit'. Once I discovered the undesirable side effects, that were conveniently not brought to my attention, I determined that I should become proactive in dealing with the root cause of my hypertension, that being a poor diet and lack of exercise, and relying on someone else's artificial answer for the high blood pressures that I had brought on myself. A proper diet, exercise, and bringing my weight back down to normal levels were all that I needed to do to eliminate the need for the medication that I had been taking for 8 years. I AM NOW FACED WITH A WHOLE NEW SET OF PROBLEMS. What to do with all this new energy and renewed sex drive. I'll gladly settle for resolving those issues. M 57 8 years

RAMIPRIL  (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)
