Which is best for controlling BP. Ramipril, Cardace or Amlodipine. Are there any side effects of them.

Here are some...: Your carefulness to avoid adverse effects from any drugs is highly commanded, but does not fit well with life reality since no doctors can predict what side effects may happen to any patients but with history review and no drug is free of its inherent side effects to few. So, ask doc timely. To consolidate understanding life reality, go to http://formefirst. Com/Basics-SelfImprovement. Html &. ..

Can ramipril be taken as an internativetof amlodipine?

Ramipril use?: Both ramipril (r) and amlodipine (a) are used to treat hbp. R reduces proteinuria (p) while a does not. R can cause a cough and a can cause some edema of the legs, as their most common side effects. Speak to your physician to see if r can replace a in your case. To achieve their maximum effect, especially to reduce any p, r's dose should be 20 mg/day and a's should be 10 mg/day. Good luck.

My bp is 146/89 and yet I take full strength amlodipine and ramipril why?

3rd Rx? Under dosing?: The average number of medications needed to fully control hypertension (high blood pressure) is 2.8. You are only on 2 medications, so a 3rd or even 4th agent from a different class may be necessary (like hydrochlorothiazide). Also, while you may be at "full strength" of amlodipine & ramipril, you may respond better to maximum dosing of alternatives from each class (like nicardipine & enalapril).

Continue therapy: Small doses of multiple medications may be better than larger doses of one or two medications. If your BP is controlled then that regimen is OK. To decrease the pill burden you might ask your physician if the ramipril could be changed to one that a similar product available in combination with amlodipine

Individual tailoring: Many combinations available. You need to go through an iterative process of trial and error with various medications. For you, an ARB (angiotensin receptor blocker) might be better than the Ramipril, and it may be that doses can be changed or a beta blocker added. Best thing to do is to continue working with your health care prof and also to take home BP measurements so there is good data on which

Dizziness on BP med: I would tell you to speak to your physician about switching the dose before you do. You may not have enough evidence to blame your dizziness on ramipril (r). You may be anemic and that, not r, could be the cause of your problem. It is normally not in your best interest to reduce the dose of your BP medication without seeing and/or discussing it with your physician first.
