I have been on Ramipril 2.5mg for 31/2 months. I do not take the medication on a regular basis. I have been having lots of swelling in my leg and I am not sure if the medication is causing this.

I have had severe migraines and could not find cause. I ran out of Ramipril over the weekend and my headaches have stopped. I believe the culprit is the Ramipril. I wonder if any one else have had headaches due to Ramipril.

My Altace was working fine. On it for 3 yrs. Pharmacy switched me to RAMIPRIL. Within 24 hrs I had a severe RASH on both legs. I'm back on Altace, no more rash! OBTW, BP controlled very well again.

Comment:
Since I began taking Ramipril 2.5 mg I have had about 2-3 episodes per week of the left side of my neck going numb, lasting for about 3-5 minutes each time. Before taking it, my carotid arteries were checked to be clear, and I can't explain it any other way. I took Altace 2.5 mg previously, but it was too expensive,so my Dr. prescribed Ramipril.

Comment:
Was on Altace with great results pharmacy substituted with "remipril 10 mg." took it for about 1 1/2 months. Blood pressure was no longer controlled as with Altace, had a BAD rash on legs. Asked Dr. and he did not feel remipril was the reason. Dr. changed to Benicar since I still had leg rash and blood pressure was not controlled. Will see if this helps. Rash is going away after 1 day ... Show Full Comment
