Which is better Ramipril or Amlodipine? Just to mention sometimes I get wheezing due to allergy House dust polen etc. I used to take Amlodipine 5mg I was bit stout. When I reduced weight due to TB my weight reduced so blodd pressure was high not much. So doctor stopped this to study BP. then When I regained weight after TB cured again lower level was bit high. Now a different doctor prescribed with Ramipril 2 capsule of 1.25 mg so it is 2.5mg. I am afraid because different doctors handled me. Any problem I cant say anything about doctor. NHS surgery is like that .
NHS hospital is better because they always send us to respective specialities. Surgery is a general doctor. I am 47. I am afraid if prescription of medicine is wrong.
Amlodipine is prescribed by Indian heart specialist. Ramipril is by a general doctor.
Please Advise. God Bless you.

Hello, Ala! How are you?

There's really no way to say that either of these medications is better than the other. They are both effective at treating high blood pressure, so it's really a matter of discovering which one works better for you and which one you decide to take is a decision that only you can make…

However, in all honesty, I were in your position, I'd go with the specialists, since this his area of expertise, so I'd be trying that one first.

In my personal experience, since I am also a high blood pressure patient, I can say that I have had much better luck with specialists than I ever had with general practitioners. I had a lot of medications that had bad effects on me and made me completely miserable and the GPs never seemed to believe me, but the specialist did, because they are more highly educated on the side effects. Thus, I was finally able to find a good combination of medications that I can take to control mine, without making me miserable.

Learn more Ramipril details here.

I've also included links to both, so you can make an informed decision.

Are there any other questions or concerns?
