This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Hyperkalaemia, 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.



Hyperkalaemia

This Hyperkalaemia side effect was reported by a consumer or non-health professional from IT. A 80-year-old patient (weight:NA) experienced the following symptoms/conditions: hypertension. The patient was prescribed Ramipril Actavis (dosage: 5 Mg/die, Qd), which was started on Oct 01, 2013. Concurrently used drugs:

Ramipril Hyperkalaemia Causes and Reviews


Potassium is a mineral that your body needs to work properly. It is a type of electrolyte. It helps your nerves to function and muscles to contract. It helps your heartbeat stay regular. It also helps move nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells. A diet rich in potassium helps to offset some of sodium's harmful effects on blood pressure.

Many people get all the potassium they need from what they eat and drink. Sources of potassium in the diet include

  • Leafy greens, such as spinach and collards
  • Fruit from vines, such as grapes and blackberries
  • Root vegetables, such as carrots and potatoes
  • Citrus fruits, such as oranges and grapefruit

Your kidneys help to keep the right amount of potassium in your body. If you have chronic kidney disease, your kidneys may not remove extra potassium from the blood. Some medicines also can raise your potassium level. You may need a special diet to lower the amount of potassium that you eat.


Ramipril Hyperkalaemia 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.
