    Although the drug lowers my BP, it also makes me feel bad, especially if I don't divide the dose. I take half of a 5 mg. tablet morning and night. I still feel a sense of anxiety for a while after taking the dose, which disapates gradually.

    I was previously on 5mg per day and I had no side affects. My dosage was increased to 10mg and I have begun to experience dizziness, drowsiness which seems to last most of the day. I also have experienced a heaviness in my chest for about an hour after taking the dosage.

    I take 5mg + 10mg Ramipril daily. I experience terrible headaches, swollen feet, lowered libido, general fatigue, increased tiredness, aching legs, a more frequent need to urinate during the night, disturbing dreams and broken sleep. Apart from these "side effects" my BP has lowered, but not significantly. Hmm....I think I need to have a word with Bones.
