Re: Altace (Ramipril) and Diarrhea
First BP med they put me on was Altace about 3 years ago and I had the same problem, plus it did nothing for my BP. I tried waiting it out, for almost 6 months, but it just kept coming and going till I finally couldn't handle it anymore. I'd give it another week and if you see no improvement, call your DR. and ask about something else.
I am very sensative to meds., so have tried quite a few. Right now I am on Avapro, and although it seemed to do fine for about a year, I'm finding it seems to give me a lot of pains and aches, especially the lower back and legs. Definately going to speak with my Dr. about a change.
Good luck, and don't let the Diarrhea go too long, as you will get dehydrated, I did, and man, it isn't fun.
