Ramipril Depression 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.
