Altace for high blood pressure

Trying to find out the safety of this medicine. ## My aunt had high bp. One evening she took two pills with out any food from morning. And she died 6 hours later. Is it possible? This was told by her relatives. Her age was 36 and her bp readings are 145/95. ## Only her doctor can answer that question. Her numbers aren't crazy high, but they do increase the risk of heart attack, or stroke, which can be fatal. Do you know what medication she was taking? Why didn't she take them with food? Did she take both pills at once, or separately? Altace contains the active ingredient Ramipril. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and hypotension. What dosage has been prescribed?

Alternative Remedy To Protect Kidnies Due Diabetes

My doctor recommended me to take Altace 2.5mg to protect my kidneys due to my Type 2 Diabetes, is there a natural remedy for this? I don't have High blood pressure. Thank you! ## Hi Mari, I'm not understanding why your doctor recommended Altace to protect your kidneys, as this drug is only used to treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. NOTE: One of the side effects of Altace is low blood sugar (in patients taking medication for diabetes), causing sweating or shakiness. Learn More: Altace Details As far as natural remedies go (for kidney protection), I would highly recommend juicing fresh fruits and vegetables. Just about every fruit or vegetable can be very beneficial in this regard; but parsley in particular, is known to be excellent for the kidneys. In additio...

Altace (Ramipril)

I have been taking Ramipril (Altace) 10mg for over ten years and they have ALWAYS been white and BLUE capsules. Last week when I renewed this prescription, they were white and PURPLE. With all the news lately about counterfeit drugs on the market, this has me wondering. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know where I could have this new PURPLE and white capsule analyzed to see if it actually has the same ingredients as the previous BLUE and white capsules? I am in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Altace for angina treatment

I was wondering if anyone can answer one question for me,... I'm on altace 5mg. Of course i have angina, doctor keep telling me i will never get a heart attack, is that true or false? I get the feeling he tells me that so i do not panic however i need to know the truth, so i can take care of myself better than i do right now. Would someone kindly let me know? ## No one can say that you WILL never get a heart attack, it is always possible, no matter what medications you are taking. So yes, taking care of yourself is advisable, even if you aren't worried about having a heart attack.
