Ramipril is mainly indicated in elderly patients who are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular complications because of underlining complications like diabetes, increased cholesterol and hypertension. Ramipril is given as an add-on therapy along with antihypertensive, antiplatelet or lipid lowering agents. Ramipril exhibits extensive tissue binding property and inhibits local rennin-angiotensin system to a great extent. Altace is a highly tissue bound drug, which gives it a long terminal half-life. You can easily buy Ramipril here at Rx 2 Go Pharmacy.
Altace is an Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor ACE inhibitor. ACE inhibitor inhibits the conversion of Angiotensin I to Angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is an octapeptide in plasma, which is obtained by a precursor plasma alpha globulin and is involved in electrolyte, blood volume and pressure homeostasis. By preventing the production of Angiotensin II, Altace effectively controls the blood pressure.
The common side effects reported with Ramipril are anaphylactoid reaction, symptomatic hypotension, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, transient increase in blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine, hepatitis, abdominal pain, anorexia, constipation, dry mouth, dyspepsia, dysphagia, hypersensitivity reactions, anxiety, convulsions, depression, somnolence and vision disturbance.
The concomitant administration of Altace and potassium supplements or potassium sparing diuretics can increase the levels of potassium in the blood. In patients taking diuretic along with Altace there is a chance of developing hypotension. It is advisable to discontinue diuretic 2 days before Ramipril treatment. The co administration of lithium and Ramipril should be followed by a continuous monitoring of serum lithium levels as it can lead to lithium toxicity. It is not advisable to consume the Altace during pregnancy as it can lead to fetal death. There is a probability of development of angioedema during Altace treatment. Avoid activities that require alertness when you are taking Altace.
The recommended starting dosage of Altace is 1.25mg/day for patients with hypertension and renal impairment and it can be increased up to 5mg/day. In post myocardial infarction the starting dose is 2.5mg twice daily. This dose is increased to 5m twice daily or 1.25mg twice daily depending on the response to the treatment. The recommended dose of Ramipril as hypertensive is 2.5mg/day. This dose is adjusted based on the blood pressure response of the patient.
