What is ramipril?
Ramipril is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, heart attacks (myocardial infarction), and other cardiovascular conditions. Ramipril is part of a family of drugs known as ACE inhibitors, which help blood vessels to relax and expand, lowering your blood pressure and reducing your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Almost half of all Americans have high blood pressure, a condition when the blood flowing through your body pushes too hard against the walls of your veins. This can lead to a variety of health problems such as stroke, heart attack, aneurysm, metabolic syndrome, and issues with memory such as dementia.
