Suggest alternative medicine for Ramipril

I am 46. Had a heart-attack at 42. Had a large pre-anyeuristic main coronary artery (so had a bypass vs just a stint). I am on Plavix, Aspirin, cholesterol reducing meds (lipitor) and Carvedilol as well as Ramipril. BUT - i have recently lost my medical coverage and can not afford new, nor can i afford ALL these meds... yet barely make enough to not qualify for low-income assistance.
Is there an natural alternative to Ramipril or Plavix for that matter?

Hello,
There is no natural alternatives for these medications, However you can have the medicines of another brand with cheaper price. Plavix contains clopidogrel so you can search for the cheapest brand available nearby. Its advisable that you don't stop these medications.
All the best.
