Re: Exercise and Ace Inhibitors

burpee,

In don't know about your specific medicine, but both Angiotensin I and II CEIs can on rare occasions cause swallowing problems or throat spasms, which can interfere slightly with the increased respiration required during excercise.

I think you are supposed to be somewhat systematic in the time you take those medicines, though most have really long half-lifes and staggering shouldn't have much of an effect.

They tell you to drink a whole glass of water to avoid hypotension symptoms like fatigue or possible black outs, but that is not usually a problem during excercise.
