They changed my generic ramipril to another with markings RDY 441 I was on generic ramipril ( called Colbolt ) and it was working just fine for my high blood pressure. But this new generic brand does't help my blood pressure at all. I was told this could be a copy generic, what does that mean. Also the pharmacy told me that they can't get the colbolt ramipril anymore. Does anyone know what I am talking about ? thank You ## yes i know what you are talking about. my ramipril is from cobalt. and yes you can still get it from walmart. watch closely these parmacies because they lie to you. ## RDY 441 does contain 10mgs of Ramipril, a generic for Altace.

how long does ramipril stay in the body 2EARE ## how long does altace 2.5mg stay in your body after you stop it? ## How long does ramipril remain in your body after stopping ## Hello, According to the FDA and NIH ramipril has a half life cycle of 3-16 hours and since it takes normally 4 to 6 half lifes for the drug to completely leave your body you are looking at between 12-96 hours, which a huge gap. Out of curiosity why do you need to know? Most people ask this question to determine when the earliest they can take a different medication is. If that's the reason for your question I would suggest waiting the maximum estimated half life of 96 hours before you take the conflicting medication just to be safe. Hope this answers your question. ...

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. ...

ramipril retention

how long does ramipril remain in your system ## The FDA classifies Ramipril as an ACE inhibitor. It is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions.

The approximate clearance time is 65 to 102 hours, so it will take several days. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Ramipril & Amlodipine

I have had high BP for some time, treated with 10 mg Ramipril. The readings have always remained on the high side. Today the GP has prescribed 5mg Amlodipine to be taken in combination with Ramipril. Does anyone have any personal experience of this? Reading the side effects of Amlodipine seems a bit scary. ## Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker and it has about the same risk of causing side effects as the Ramipril that you're already taking. However, the most important fact of relevance is that it's far more dangerous to let your blood pressure remain high than any possible side effects you may experience from a medication. Letting it remain high risks damage to your heart, which may be permanent, it also creates the risk of stroke, heart attack, congestive heart failure and... ...

Ramipril and kidneys

Been on Ramipril 2.5mg for eight years or more and new Dr.changed them to 5mg.I have recently had a blood test to check kidney function/liver,etc and had a call from Dr.to say my potassium levels were high....is this due to the increase in strength of the Ramipril? The medication was increased to bring my blood pressure down to a more acceptable level. ## Hello, Sheik! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you're having. Yes, Ramipril has been known to cause elevated potassium levels, as a side effect. As listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. It may be best to switch to a different medication, depending on how high your level is, since hyperkalemia can be dangerous. Is there anything else I can help w... ...

Ramipril Side Effects

i have been on 12.5mg of ramipril each day for the past 2 and half years. We have now got a new doctor in our practice and he says that it is a too high dosage for me and now has put me on 10mg of ramipril and 5mg of amlodipine. Could the high dosage of rampipril caused anything to me, i have my blood pressure checked every three months and bloods done every six months or can it do anything to me in the future. ## That's actually not a really high dosage, it can go up to 20mgs a day for hypertension. Why did he feel it was too high of a dose, were your blood pressure readings low, while you were taking it? Next question, why is it only being checked every 3 months? Are you checking it yourself, at home? ## I have not had a bowel movement in almost 4 months. Have had every test known... ...

Forgot to take Ramipril

Hi, I was recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and 3 meds were added to what I already take (I also have MS). I started using a weekly med organizer to mainly keep track of steroid tapering. I forgot to put my Ramipril and didn't realize until I began sweating profusely and headache. I think it was 3 missed days. I have been on this medication for approx 4 years. I take 5mg daily. I am 54 yr old female. Are these symptoms being caused by missed doses or is it something else? ## It is hard to say, it may be due to missing the medication, but it could also be due to some other cause. Have you started taking it, again? If so, has there been any change? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and hypotension. Taking a st... ...

side effects of ramipril

I read and cme to know that in some patients the use of Ramipril actually increases the Blood preasure due to some specific action of Kidney emmissions(only a minority of the patients) As it is in my case. can somebody clarify. ## No, it actually causes the opposite effect, in a small percentage of patients that have some impairment to renal function, it can cause them to absorb too much of the medication and suffer from low blood pressure (hypotension). In these cases, they have to use a much lower dosage and their BP must be regularly monitored to make sure it isn't dropping too low. This is a common issue with most blood pressure medications. Are there any questions or comments? ## Iam 63 years old. I take Ramistar 5mg in the morning and2.5 mg in the night. My diastolic varies be... ...

who manufactures Ramipril?

My pharmacist changed my generic Ramipril manufacturer and told me it was Watson. He claimed it was the "best" and had a great reputation. I found 2 other listings, never Watson.

Listed below are the Ramipril manufacturers I personally came across after looking at various pills, but it may not be all of them (I have yet to see Watson as well): Cobalt Laboratories Inc Roxane Laboratories, Inc.

Amitriptyline and Ramipril

I have been taking amitriptyline for approx 16yrs and ramipril for 4 yrs. Is it safe to take these together? My dr has said new findings have come to light about taking these two together. I took amitriptyline for help with sleeping and have been off it for a week and now average 2hrs of sleep a night. ## The only thing I can find listed by the U.S. FDA is that taking them together may result in more lowering of your blood pressure than usual, so you may need a dosage adjustment on the Ramipril. Thus, you should be aware to watch out for any symptoms such as extreme dizziness, drowsiness, shallow breathing, or fainting. Did you doctor provide you with details about the findings he is talking about? Are you on any other medications? ## Hi dr did provide details I am now seeping better al... ...
