Remistar 10 mg is indicated for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). It may be used as monotherapy or in combination with thiazide diuretics.
It may be prescribed to patients 55 years or older at high risk of developing a major cardiovascular event because of a history of coronary artery disease, stroke, diabetes, or peripheral vascular disease that is accompanied by at least one other cardiovascular risk factor (low HDL levels, hypertension, raised elevated total cholesterol levels, or smoking) to reduce the risk of developing stroke, myocardial infarction, or death from heart-related disease.
Remistar is given to stable patients who have shown signs of congestive heart failure within the first few days after sustaining acute myocardial infarction. Giving Ramipril to such patients has been shown to decrease the risk of death and the risks of hospitalization and progression to severe resistant heart failure.
Remistar contains Ramipril, which belongs to a group of medicines known as ACE inhibitors (Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors). The class of drugs causes blood vessels to relax and widens them to make it easier for the heart to pump blood around your body. This helps to increase the blood supply of oxygen to the heart, which may reduce the risk of further damage to your heart.
Remistar is not recommended for use in pregnant women unless necessary. If you are pregnant or think you might get pregnant, discuss the risk and benefits of using this medicine with your doctor. Do not drive or operate machinery during the treatment, as you may feel dizzy. Alcohol intake is strictly prohibited during the treatment. ACE inhibitors should be used with caution in patients with kidney disease. Talk to your doctor if you are suffering from kidney impairment. The safety and effectiveness of Remistar in children have not been established; therefore, ACE inhibitors are not recommended in these age groups.
Common side effects of Remistar 10 mg are headache, dizziness, fainting, hypotension, dry cough, chest pain, stomach pain, indigestion, bronchitis, sinuses, shortness of breath, feeling or being sick, cramps, or pain in muscles.
Serious side effects include:
- Swelling of the face/lips or throat makes it difficult to swallow or breathe, and itching and rashes.
- Severe skin reactions include mouth ulcers, rash, reddening, worsening of the pre-existing skin disease, reddening, and blistering of the skin.
To treat hypertension, the dosage of Remistar must be individualized. Initiation of treatment requires consideration of recent antihypertensive drugs, blood pressure levels, and salt restrictions. The dosage of other medicines for high blood pressure being used with Ramipril may need to adjust, and the adjustment needs to be done under the doctor's supervision. Remistar 10 mg tablet can be taken on an empty stomach or with a meal. Making changes to your lifestyle will also help lower blood pressure. These may include regular exercise, losing weight, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol intake, and reducing the amount of salt in your diet as instructed by your doctor.
