i was on 5 mg of ramiprill for 6 years. BP always 120/80. Suddenly, BP rose to 150/110. My doctor put me on 10 mg a day; 5mg in the morning and 5 at night. After a week of this regimen, my bp has been lowered to 140/95, still high. Do you think it will eventually lower my bp to the desired level. PS i am otherwise healthy but am i just being impatient?

My cardiologist is cutting back my dose of Ramipril from 10 mg in AM and 10 mg in PM. My B/P is variable with systolic sometimes in the 130 s, and sometimes in the 140 s, even as high as 160 s. I m concerned about the reduction, therefore when should I take the Rx for the most bang for the buck? is there any charge for answering my question? Thank you

Hi - I ve recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure. My doctor increased my dose of ramipril to 7.5mg last week, and the side effects have been dreadful. I feel faint, very weak and feel like I m am having a panic/anxiety attack. I feel very dizzy all the time, with weakness in my arms and legs and muscle pain in my neck and chest. My blood pressure is coming down, and I have purchased a home monitor to check it. Since last week the irregular heartbeat display has appeared frequently. I feel so ill constantly that I feel close to breaking point. Do you think it is the ramipril and is there an altternative? Thanks.

My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.
