Effect of Ramipril

Ramipril belongs to the drug group of ACE inhibitors. The substance is given in a non-active form and must first be converted into the active form of ramiprilat in the body. Such agents are called prodrugs.

Once converted into ramiprilat, the drug inhibits the production of the body’s blood pressure-boosting hormone angiotensin. In addition, Ramipril promotes the excretion of water and salts from the body, which reduces the blood volume and thereby pressure from the vessels. In addition, Ramipril inhibits the breakdown of bradikinin, an endogenous substance that relaxes the blood vessels. All of these effects together produce a significant reduction in blood pressure.

Ramipril only needs to be taken once a day. Its effect lasts about 48 hours. However, it does not start until one or two hours after taking it.

The active substance is predominantly excreted via the kidney. Therefore, the attending physician should reduce the dose in patients with severe renal impairment and urinary output.

Potential Ramipril side effects may include:

    Ramipril for Fat metabolic disorders; High blood pressure

    Since prescribing Crestor 10 mg, I have felt a slight pressure (no pain) in the left shoulder. The drug has brought all blood levels to a very good result, so therefore highly recommended, although not very many test results are available and the side effects can actually be very questionable. Wewr has experience with Crestor 10 mg? Thanks for your messages.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Ramipril for Heart muscle enlargement

    So far no side effects occurred. However, doubt the effectiveness. But my cardiologist says ACE inhibitors are the only medications that you can take for years absolutely problem-free and they support the heart I just take them.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Ramipril for Sleep disorders; High blood pressure

    I’m taking this combination for more than a year now, after more than three years of manic phase and then being briefed on my lawyers, otherwise I’d have done more crap. My experience is actually quite good with this combination, only the Seroquel is the purest sleeping aid, take and fall asleep is all one. To gain weight, I can only say that I have only slightly decreased by a lot of sports and diet change and keep the weight now. But it is a daily fight. My question- Is this combination and the relatively high dosage not harmful at some point for liver and so?

    Ramipril for Pain (chronic); High blood pressure

    after years of unsuccessful attempts to get my pain under control, caused by a complex clinical picture, this combination, combined with 2 to 3 inpatient pain therapies annually, is the most optimal for me at the moment. It turns out, due to the variety of drugs and high dosage, one or the other side effect, especially to mention is a significant increase in weight, but everything else on drugs has shown no effect.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    Ramipril for Depression; Cholesterol value increase; High blood pressure

    I’ve been living pretty well with the drug group since taking it. Citalopram can cause dizziness in the first two weeks, otherwise I had no negative perceptions. I tolerate bisoprolol excellently. I was initially able to experience muscle pain when taking simvastatin. These, however, diminished after about a week. Ramipril just runs in parallel to bisoprolol. So far no side effects detected. By taking the medication, I have my blood pressure pretty well under control. Some peaks occur again and again. But nothing bad. The blood lipids are also better and my anxiety and panic attacks are very rare. Previously, without the use of citalopram, I was rushed to the hospital several times a year with a suspected heart attack. But then it was just a hyperventilating, caused by the fears.

    Side effects: Muscle aches; Dizziness

    Ramipril for Cholesterol value increase; Heart rhythm disturbances; Coronary heart disease

    Simvastatin brought the cholesterol levels to very good levels. Unfortunately, it almost got me in the wheelchair. Doctors ignore worries and concerns, trying to get me to take it back. For a year, I refuse. Etrezol is the same. Since I no longer take these medications, the value (for a healthy person) is in the normal range.
