Ran Ramipril Dosage

The recommended adult dose of ramipril ranges from 2.5 mg to 20 mg daily in 1 or 2 divided doses, depending on the dose and individual circumstances such as your response to the medication.

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 2.5 mg to 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.

Many things can affect the dose of 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 given here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Ran Ramipril exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.

Store Ran Ramipril at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Ran 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 Ran 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.

Ran 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 Ran 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 Ran 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 Ran Ramipril.

Blood disorders: In rare cases, a low white blood cell count has been reported with people taking Ran 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 Ran 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 the risk of kidney problems.

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

Liver function: Ran 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. People who have liver problems will need to be closely monitored by their doctor while taking Ran 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 Ran Ramipril. This rarely causes problems, but your doctor may want to monitor your potassium levels through blood tests.

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

Surgery: It is important that your physician and anesthesiologist know that you are taking Ran 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. Ran Ramipril should not be used during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Ran Ramipril, stop taking it immediately and contact your doctor.

Breast-feeding: Ran Ramipril passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking ramipril it may affect your baby. Ran 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 Ran Ramipril have not been established for children. The use of ramipril by this age group is not recommended.

Seniors: Seniors may be more sensitive to the effects of ramipril.
