User Comments about Ramipril
07 Apr 2016 I do not want to take any drugs, as I honestly believe a lot of the drugs supplied by doctors, even when just following instructions have resulted in a number of people committing suicide which I know I could have done if I had continued with statins and other prescribed drugs by a doctor. However I have continued with Ramipril as I am of the opinion it may be reducing my blood pressure as I did suffer with a heart attack. I have now got two stents inserted and a pace maker. I am in reasonably good health and aged 91 years.

15 Oct 2015 This product makes me nausious , fatigue is serious. I feel horrible after taking it. Doctors will not consider an side affects from this product and will not even consider changing it. I feel like I have the flu all the time. Which is difficult as I have fibromyalgia. Another illness which doctors will not recognize.

28 Feb 2015 I realize the Ramipril has helped lower my blood pressure but the constipation is hard to deal with. It's the only drug I take and before taking Ramipril I was never constipated to this extent. I'm thinking maybe I should be trying something else or quit taking Ramipril to see if is the culprit. The reason I started taking Ramipril - I had a hysterectomy in Oct 2014 and that's when my blood pressure got out of wack and was prescribed Ramipril.
