Last June my blood pressure was quite raised and my doctor put me on 5mg of Ramipril daily. It is now causing me some minor side effects, ie, a slight cough and gagging at the back of the throat making me want to clear my throat on quite a regular basis. Went back to the doc today and he wants me to stick it out but change from taking the tablet before going to bed to taking it with breakfast. His thinking is that taking it with food may help. My BP is well under control with Ramipril and was wondering if any member is no the drug and have either had the side effects and gone through them. I'm taking Manuka honey to help with the tickley throat.
