Ramipril Drug Information

Ramipril is in a class of drugs called angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or ACE inhibitors. It is prescribed to prevent heart failure or lower blood pressure. Hypertension is a disease in which blood pressure is higher than normal. Heart failure is a disease in which the heart does not work properly.

ACE inhibitors such as ramipril prevent the body from producing a hormone called angiotensin II. Ramipril does this by inhibiting an enzyme called an angiotensin converter. Ramipril dilates blood vessels and reduces the amount of open water absorbed by the kidneys, thereby lowering blood pressure. People with high blood pressure may have no symptoms, but if the condition persists, high blood pressure can damage the heart and blood vessels and lead to a heart attack.

Ramipril can lower blood pressure alone or in combination with other medicines. A combination brand called Triapin (Ramipril with another drug called Fludipin) can help reduce the total number of pills that people with high blood pressure need.

In heart failure, there may be too much extra fluid in the bloodstream. ACE inhibitors help reduce these fluids. These drugs have a protective effect on the heart and slow the progression of heart failure. This protective measure helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in people who are at risk for these diseases.
