Can I split ramipril tablet and take at different times to avoid side effects which are light headedness and headache. I am on 10 mg tablets. I am 68 years old and have been on ramipril for a few years bet side effects seem worse lately. BP normally around 128/80
DAVE; FIRST YOU SHOULD CALL YOUR DOCTOR AND LET THE DOCTOR KNOW ABOUT THE SIDEFFECTS WHICH IS WHAT IT SAYS IF THE ONES YOU SAY YOU GET YOUR TO CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR SEE WHAT YOUR DOCTOR SAY ABOUT THAT AND THEN ASK IF YOU CAN TAKE THE MEDICATION AT BEDTIME AND SEE IF THAT AVOIDS THE PROBLEM AND WHAT CAN YOU TAKE FOR a headache. BUT YOU SHOULD LET THE DOCTOR KNOW ABOUT THE LIGHTHEADEDNESS. THEY MAY JUST SWITCH THE MEDICATIONS. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU DO YOU GET YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKED REGULAR, ANYTIME SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS to ASK THE DOCTOR THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO HAVE TO PUT UP WITH SIDE EFFECTS Every day. BUT CALL THE DOCTOR ON THIS ONE. CHUCK1957
