    I'm an adult male in my early 50's. My doctor prescribed Ramipril capsules 10mg x1 a day in the a.m. for high blood pressure/hypertension 3-years ago. Once a day wasn't sufficiently effective after 3 months, so he upped it to 10mg x2 a day morning and evening. That did the trick.

    Took it 10 months, developed terrible cough, dizziness, headaches, nausea, low energy, anxiety. BP grew worse. Now I have protein leakage in kidney as well. Weaned myself off!

    Although I have only been taking ramipril for a few days I have noticed a difference in how I am feeling although my blood pressure has come down it is still in the high range. Only time will tell how effective this drug is for me.

Thought I finally found the winning combo. UNTIL.....yep, the ... Show Full Comment

    The Ramapril works great!! I am a CPhT at a Pharmacy, and have been on this medication since I was 16 and now I'm almost 20, the only real downer which wasn't as bad as it use to be (when I was on 5mg dosing) I am on 10mg now, but is a serious decline in "getting it up"
