Ramipril problems

Hi everyone. Started Ramipril 1.25mg in Oct 22 with no problems. Gone up to 2.5mg a week ago. Bit of a cough, which I can live with, but seem to have increasing numbness/tingling in feet and hands. Also not sleeping so well and feel a bit dizzy, and am knackered!
Blood pressure was 135/75 when on 1.25mg so tempted to go back down to 1.25mg.
Has anyone else had these side effects from Ramipril please?

Thanks for reply. Felt the worst ive felt for months!

I was also on Ramipril in my early recovery which gave me the most annoying tickly cough. The hospital changed this to Losartan whuch solved the problem and suits me much better.

Hope you find what works for you soon.
Regards Sue

I haven’t had a reaction to ramipril. Perhaps as suggested above, speak to the gp, it might be the sensations are not connected with the medicine but other changes that can happen post stroke… apparently months or even years after.

Hi Ruth,

I had to come off Ramipril as i was the same witb constact coughing.
