Could I take ramipril instead of enalipril for a day or two?

Same class: While they are both in the class of so called ACE-Inhibitors, they still may affect you different and it is not always easy to figure out the dose equivalent since the milligrams for each drug can be different. So I say get some advice regarding the dosages you have available and whether it would work safely for a few days. ...Read more

I am told that having hydrochlorothiazide in combination with ramipril for years together can cause loss of sodium and other problem in body.

I am told that having hydrochlorothiazide in combination with ramipril for years together can cause loss of sodium and other problem in body.

Diuretics and sodium: Using a diuretic, like hyrdochlorothiazide (hctz (hydrochlorothiazide)) can cause a drop in sodium (na) levels in your blood. Ramipril (r) has no effect on your na level, as its anti-hypertensive effect is based on its making your arteries more compliant which lowers blood pressure. If low na levels are a problem for you, ask your doctor if there are different options for your blood pressure control other than hctz (hydrochlorothiazide). ...Read more
