Ramipril Atrial Fibrillation Side Effects

Ramipril Atrial Fibrillation Side Effect Reports


The following Ramipril Atrial Fibrillation side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Atrial Fibrillation, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Ramipril or it might take time to develop.



Atrial Fibrillation

This Atrial Fibrillation side effect was reported by a physician from US. A 60-year-old patient (weight:NA) experienced the following symptoms/conditions: hypertension,atrial fibrillation.

Ramipril Atrial Fibrillation Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the speed or rhythm of the heartbeat. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia. The cause is a disorder in the heart's electrical system.

Often, people who have AF may not even feel symptoms. But you may feel

  • Palpitations -- an abnormal rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness or difficulty exercising
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion

AF can lead to an increased risk of stroke. In many patients, it can also cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure.

Doctors diagnose AF using family and medical history, a physical exam, and a test called an electrocardiogram (EKG), which looks at the electrical waves your heart makes. Treatments include medicines and procedures to restore normal rhythm.

Ramipril Atrial Fibrillation Reviews

Sat, 05 Jan 2013

Have been taken off Ramipril... I was on 7.5mg. First I had the cough and servere tingling in the face and legs. Then came the puffiness that was gradual. Feeling generally unwell. I have been off Ramipril for the past 3 weeks. Just on felodpine 2.5mg at the moment my bp is around 125/80 in the past went up to 180/111. I have lost 2.1/2 stone in weight I am 66years of age. The only problem now is I still fill edgy, still some tingling in my face puffiness has gone.  I do feel that Ramipril needs to be looked at more carefully. As do other bp tablets... Seems to me they can do more harm than good in some people.
