What should I discuss with my healthcare professional before taking Ramipril?
You should talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking Ramipril if you:
- Have heart disease
- Have liver failure
- Have kidney disease
- Have diabetes
- Will be undergoing surgery or anesthesia.
Let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant. During pregnancy, Ramipril can cause damage or even death to the developing fetus.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take (including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements), especially if you are taking a diuretic (water pill) or a potassium supplement.
Do not take any salt substitutes containing potassium without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
