About Ramipril Capsules and Tablets

Ramipril is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. ACE Inhibitors work by reducing the heart’s workload by dilating (widening) blood vessels. As well as hypertension, Ramipril can be prescribed to treat heart failure, or to protect blood vessels after a recent heart attack. These capsules can be opened and emptied into a glass of water if you have difficulty swallowing large capsules.

Hypertension does not always present with noticeable symptoms, which sometimes mean the condition goes undiagnosed. If left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to complications with the heart, kidneys, and other vital organs. Ultimately, ignoring hypertension will significantly increase the risk of suffering heart failure, a heart attack, a stroke, or kidney failure. Ramipril cannot completely cure hypertension or heart failure, but it will help effectively manage the conditions.

What is Ramipril?

Ramipril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering blood pressure can lower the risk of a stroke or heart attack. Ramipril is also used to treat congestive heart failure. The Ramipril blood pressure medication comes in capsules of 2.5mg, 5mg, and 10mg.

How does it work?

This high blood pressure medication works by preventing the enzymatic conversion of angiotensin, a hormone regulating blood pressure, into angiotensin II. It is this late-stage hormone that can induce high blood pressure by making the blood vessels compress. To stop the action of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) that prepares this transformation, this allows Ramipril to help reduce blood pressure.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Ramipril Capsules is a generic treatment for hypertension, manufactured by Actavis. It works the same way as Tritace, which is a medicine called an IECO inhibitor, and it works the same way in the body. Ramipril capsules are available in different doses. The potency prescribed will depend on the medication you have previously taken, your susceptibility to side effects, and whether you are taking any other medications.
