Brief Answer: no known interactions Detailed Answer: HI, thanks for using healthcare magic There are no known interactions between glucosamine and ramipril. Glucosamine interacts with other medications (warafin, anisindione, dicumarol, ) but it is not known to interact with ramipril. You can use them together safely. You can consider visiting a physiotherapist in addition to using the supplement. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
