I have arthritis but this pain and loss of flexability came on quickly. My Dr. Was out of town so the on call Dr. Called me and said ramipril didn't have those side effects. It looks to me like several people have had similar problems with this drug. How do you convince the Dr. To get you off of something you know is harming you?
Tell him to read the prescribing information for drs. Here is what I found, among the other usual side effects-Arthralgia, arthritis, dyspnea, edema, epistaxis, impotence, increased sweating, malaise, myalgia, and weight gain.
Note the arthalgia(joint pain) and myalgia (muscles pain)
Here is the web site that comes from:
- Ramipril Information for Consumers
- Ramipril Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
- Side Effects of Ramipril (detailed)
