Ramipril comes in 4 strengths
The dose for Ramipril depends upon which condition you are trying to treat. For high blood pressure, you should initially take 2.5 mg tablets daily (or 1.5mg daily if prescribed with a diuretic). Following this, your doctor may increase your dose up to 20mg a day. Often your Ramipril is taken as a single dose, but it may be possible to divide this dose over the course of the day. Speak to your doctor about your options and always follow their advice when taking medication.
Ramipril can also be used in different doses for the treatment of heart failure and to reduce the risk of heart attacks or strokes. The prescribing doctor will give you directions for use.
How to take Ramipril
Ramipril should be taken whole. Alternatively, you may open the capsule and mix the contents with 120 ml of water, apple juice, or applesauce.
What should I do if I miss a dose of Ramipril?
If you are within 12 hours of your dose, take the missed dose. However, if you are more than 12 hours out, just take the next dose when it would be due. Do not take 2 doses at once or make up for a missed dose.
