Ramipril

Drug Info for ramipril

Ramipril is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients at risk for these problems and to improve survival in patients with heart failure after a heart attack. Ramipril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ramipril treats high blood pressure and heart failure while reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. It works by blocking the body’s production of the compound ACE and relaxing blood vessels. This causes the heart to be able to work easier and with less stress. When high blood pressure is ignored, serious issues can occur to the heart, blood vessels, and kidneys.

In addition to Ramipril, Altace is used to treat high blood pressure. Consult with your doctor to determine the best treatment for your condition.
