What is Ramipril?
Ramipril is a high blood pressure medication, intended to minimise the chance of suffering a stroke and/or heart attack. Secondly, it can benefit survival statistics of heart failure/heart surgery patients.
How does ramipril work?
Ramipril is an ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitor. It reduces the concentration of chemicals which result in the blood vessels tightening. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly through the body so the heart can pump blood efficiently: this helps to reduce blood pressure. Do I need to alter my diet in any way while on ramipril? Nothing in your diet should interact with ramipril and alter how it works. However, high blood pressure is often caused by a diet high in salts, fats and cholesterol: your doctor may advise you to improve your diet so that you can get the best out of your treatment.
Can I drink alcohol whilst taking Ramipril?
Yes, but it is advised to be very careful and to only drink responsibly in moderation. Consuming alcohol when taking Ramipril can enhance sensations of lightheadedness and dizziness worse. This is because when you drink alcohol, it can enhance the effects of Ramipril, which then further lowers your blood pressure.
Can I take painkillers as normal whilst on Ramipril?
NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are used as painkillers, especially for inflammatory conditions, and can impact on how Ramipril functions. These include ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, and high dose aspirin.
When should I take Ramipril?
You can take Ramipril at any time round the clock, however an effort should be made to take it the same time each day. It doesn't make a difference if it is taken with or without food.
Who usually takes Ramipril?
It is advised that anyone under 18 should not take Ramipril: the safety of this medication is yet to be tested amongst this age bracket. Ramipril has been tested in the over 65s age range. It is equally as effective at this age, but patients may experience increased sensitivity to the treatment.
