What is Ramipril?
Ramipril belongs to a group of medications known as ACE inhibitors. It blocks the effects of a compound which causes the blood vessels to tighten and narrow, stopping blood pressure from rising. As a result, the heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood around the body, so it can beat more effectively.
If your doctor has suggested that you use medication to bring your high blood pressure down, Ramipril tablets may be the most appropriate treatment for you. You’ll need to complete a consultation with one of our doctors before you can buy Ramipril, so they can ensure it’s safe for you to use. If approved, we’ll send your Ramipril tablets via free next-day delivery.
What are the benefits of Ramipril?
Ramipril tablets are proven to help lower high blood pressure, which is why they’re prescribed to hypertensive patients. Ramipril is also prescribed for heart failure, to prevent heart attacks and to improve kidney problems. A study in 2005 found that patients who took Ramipril tablets were a third less likely to experience a stroke.
Usually you’ll only need to take a tablet once a day, which makes Ramipril a convenient and effective high blood pressure treatment.
How does it work?
A naturally occurring enzyme, called ACE, produces a compound as part of the body’s regulation of blood pressure which forces the vessels to constrict and narrow. It causes pressure to rise because the blood is pushing harder against the walls of the narrow vessels.
Ramipril tablets stop this process by blocking the action of ACE so it can’t produce the compound that narrows the vessels. This allows the vessels to remain relaxed and widened, and helps blood flow more freely through the body. As a result, the heart isn’t under so much strain and can contract with less force.
Who can take it?
If you are pregnant; have unstable blood circulation; have a history of swelling of the lips, face or tongue; or suffer from narrowing of the main artery, for example, you won’t be able to use Ramipril tablets.
However, if your doctor has suggested you consider medication to help lower high blood pressure then it may be safe for you to take Ramipril.
It’s important that you discuss your medical history and any medication you’re taking with a doctor, so they can make an informed decision about whether Ramipril will be safe for you to use. Certain conditions, such as decreased liver function, liver cirrhosis, severe heart failure or diabetes may stop you using Ramipril, but it will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
How do you take Ramipril tablets?
You should take Ramipril exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Usually you’ll take one daily dose, though some patients will be told to split the dose and take two Ramipril tablets each day.
Are there any side effects?
Any prescription medication can cause side effects, and Ramipril is no different; however, the majority of people who take these tablets don’t experience side effects.
The most commonly reported side effects are mild and include thirst, fever, pale skin, confusion, jaundice and chest pain. The more rare side effects reported by some Ramipril users include dizziness, nausea, vomiting or a spinning sensation, to name a few.
