Mylan Ramipril How to Take

Ramipril belongs to the class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It is used alone and in combination with specific diuretics (water pills) to treat high blood pressure. Ramipril may also be used to reduce the risk of problems associated with heart disease (e.g., Heart Attack, Stroke, or death) for people over 55 years old who are at a high risk of having these problems.

It is also given to certain people after heart attacks to improve survival and reduce the risk of hospitalization for heart failure. It works by relaxing blood vessels and by making the heart pump more efficiently.

Mylan Ramipril may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Mylan Ramipril may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Mylan Ramipril may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Mylan Ramipril for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Mylan Ramipril, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Mylan Ramipril without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Mylan Ramipril to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Mylan Ramipril if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Mylan Ramipril Dosage

The recommended adult dose of ramipril ranges from 2.5 mg to 10 mg daily in 1 or 2 divided doses, depending on the dose and circumstances. The maximum daily dose of Mylan Ramipril is 20 mg.

To treat high blood pressure, the usual starting dose for people not using diuretics (water pills) is 2.5 mg once daily. The dose is usually increased according to need every 2 weeks. The usual dose range is between 2.5 mg and 10 mg daily. For people using diuretics, your doctor may start with a lower dose of 1.25 mg daily or ask you to stop using the diuretic for 2 or 3 days before starting ramipril.

For people at increased risk of heart disease events, the recommended starting dose is 2.5 mg once daily, increasing gradually to 10 mg daily if tolerated.

For treatment following a heart attack, the usual starting dose varies depending on existing medical conditions, blood pressure, and other medications. The recommended starting dose is 2.5 mg twice daily, increased every 1 to 3 days if appropriate. The dose should not exceed 5 mg twice daily. A lower dose of 1.25 mg twice daily may be needed for those who experience Low Blood Pressure as a result of taking the medication.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Mylan Ramipril be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.

Mylan Ramipril Precautions

There may be an interaction between ramipril and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Mylan Ramipril. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Mylan Ramipril Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Mylan Ramipril.

Angioedema: Ramipril may cause a serious allergic reaction called angioedema, which may be fatal if not treated promptly. If you have difficulty breathing or notice hives or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or experience severe abdominal pain, stop taking Mylan Ramipril and get emergency medical help at once. Other ACE inhibitors should not be taken in the future. People who have had angioedema caused by other substances may be at increased risk of angioedema while taking Mylan Ramipril.

Blood disorders: In rare cases, a low white blood cell count has been reported with people taking Mylan Ramipril. Your doctor may occasionally monitor your level of white blood cells by performing blood tests. Low white blood cell levels may increase your risk for infection. If you notice any signs of infection (e.g. fever, sore throat), contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Cough: People taking ramipril may develop a dry, persistent cough that usually disappears only after stopping or lowering the dose of ramipril.

Kidney function: Decreased kidney function or Kidney Disease can cause Mylan Ramipril to build up in the body, causing side effects. Also, ramipril can cause decreases in kidney function. Certain people, such as those with narrowed blood vessels in their kidneys or severe congestive heart failure, may be more likely to experience this complication. The use of other diuretics (water pills), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or aliskiren may further increase risk of kidney problems.

If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Mylan Ramipril may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Mylan Ramipril, and whether any special monitoring is needed. People with kidney function impairment may require lower doses of Mylan Ramipril.

Liver function: Mylan Ramipril may cause liver problems. If you experience any signs of liver problems such as yellowing of the skin or eyes, fever, generally feeling unwell, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, itching, muscle pain, rash, or swollen glands, contact your doctor immediately. If you have liver problems, you will need to be closely monitored by your doctor while taking Mylan Ramipril.

Low blood pressure: Occasionally, blood pressure drops too low after taking ramipril. This usually happens after the first or second dose or when the dose is increased. It is more likely to occur for those who take diuretics, or the medication aliskiren, have a salt-restricted diet, are on dialysis, have diarrhea, or are vomiting. To reduce the risk of dizziness, get up slowly from a lying or sitting position. If low blood pressure causes you to faint or feel lightheaded, contact a doctor.

Potassium: Increases in blood levels of potassium can occur with use of Mylan Ramipril. This rarely causes problems, but your doctor may want to monitor your potassium levels through blood tests.

Reduced alertness: Mylan Ramipril may reduce alertness, especially at the beginning of treatment. Do not drive or perform tasks that require alertness until you know how Mylan Ramipril affects you.

Surgery: It is important that your physician and anesthesiologist know that you are taking Mylan Ramipril before you undergo any surgical procedures requiring general anesthesia.

Pregnancy: ACE inhibitors such as ramipril may cause severe harm or death to the developing baby if taken by the mother during pregnancy. Mylan Ramipril should not be used during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Mylan Ramipril, stop taking it immediately and contact your doctor.

Breast-feeding: Mylan Ramipril passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking ramipril it may affect your baby. Mylan Ramipril is not recommended for breast-feeding women. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Mylan Ramipril have not been established for children. The use of ramipril by this age group is not recommended.
