Hey guys,

i was @ my docs office yesterday because i had to wear a 24 hour bloodpressure monitor due to some high readings.
My dad has always had a high blood pressure and the doc thinks that i have it from him..
(i dont take any roids, so i can rule that out :D)
He prescribed me ramipril, 2,5mg each day in the evening.
My questions:
Has some1 experience with ramipril or other ACE inhibitors?
Any positive/negative effects for bodybuilding?
Is there a better blood pressure medication for bodybuilders?
thanks alot guys!

telmisartan, which is an ARB, is good too.

Look into it. Usually second line but I like it a lot more. Better drug profile.

thanks for your answers guys!
Any reason why i should try to switch to telmisartan from Ramipril?
Does ramipril have any negatives/does telmisartan have more positive effects?
I could try to switch saying i get side effects from ramipril (well, i indeed experienced some nausea/stomach pain)...

remapril has no effect on bodybuilding except you won't hold as much water

fat/muscle gain no difference.

i take lisinopril as well. Zero sides. There was an article a couple years back in MD on how ACE inhibitors help with muscle growth, as well. beta blockers are much more known for negative sides

2.5mg is a really low dose you shouldn't notice any sides. The only remotely common side from ACEI's is a nagging cough but again you shouldn't get it with that dose.

I've been using it doctor prescribed for nearly 15 years @ 10mg per day. I've never noticed any side effects and to my knowledge, it hasn't hampered my bodybuilding at all.

I use Lisinopril as well, same class drug. I think you are on a good drug. Follow the doc's advice and see how that dose works for you. That is a nice low dose. They always start you low and then work it up if your bp still isn't in the range it should be. I would think they are aiming for 120/80 or less.

How high was yours?

Even at 40mgs a day, I get no sides. Mine is prescribed to prevent Proteinuria.

Good to know. I used to take 20 mg/day but had to cut that down to 10 mg/day because my BP was getting too low. I'm also on a hefty dose of beta blocker Coreg CR at 80mg/day.

Do you think i should try to switch to telmisartan concerning the additional benefits or are they negliable?[/lang]

I just prefer telmisartan for the "sides". Which are actually pretty cool benefits, namely:

- increased endurance (I NOTICED this first week, so it's not minor)
- reduction of LVH, if it exists, and prevention if it does not.

Been on Lisinopril for 6+ months now, 10mg/day in the morning. Similar to ramipril, both ACE inhibitors.

I haven't personally experienced any negative side effects from the medication with bodybuilding style training. IF you're a runner or do lots of cardio, you may run into issues with blood pressure dropping due to the loss of fluids and your bodies inability, due to the meds, to release angiotensin to compensate.
