Muscular fasciculation on body, giddiness, numbness, burning in palms of hands and soles of feet post intake of Ramipril. Side effects?

When I sleep, Ramipril (10 mg) has caused me muscular fasciculation all over the body , giddyness in the head, aches and numbness and burning in the palms of the hand and soles of the feet over the last 6 months. I never had this problem before. Why don t they ban this drug? I am also on novase 10 mg. My BP drops to125 (sys) by 75(dia) and my pulse beat is 84. I am 56 years old and otherwise completely healthy. I think I am being overdosed. I stopped the drugs over last 3 days and I have completely recovered. The only problem seems the pressure is 125 sys by 88(dia) by 86 pulse when I awake in the morning. Is that high? Do I have BP or what?? Thanks for your considered opinion doctor. I am from Malaysia.

Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. For your age the systolic (125) and diastolic (88) is fine. But if you had been consuming anti-hypertensive medications, will recommend that you monitor your blood pressure daily (in lying down and sitting posture) just to check if you are hypertensive. If it comes high BP then you can discuss with your clinician and change to another medication. Novasen contains acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) which belongs to the group of medications for platelet aggregation inhibitors (anticlotting agents). It works by interfering with the production of compounds in the body that cause blood clots and prevent heart attack in people who are at increased risk. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
