Drug Mode of Action ::  

Ramipril, a prodrug of ramiprilat, competitively inhibits ACE from converting angiotensin I to angiotensin II (a potent vasoconstrictor) resulting in increased plasma renin activity and reduced aldosterone (a hormone that causes water and Na retention) secretion. This promotes vasodilation thus producing a hypotensive effect and a beneficial effect in CHF.

Drug Interactions ::

May enhance hypotensive effect w/ diuretics and other antihypertensives. May increase risk of renal function deterioration w/ NSAIDs. May increase serum levels and toxicity of lithum. May increase hyperkalaemic effect w/ K-sparing diuretics and supplements. Potentially Fatal: Concomitant use w/ aliskiren aliskiren may increase the risk of hyperkalaemia, hypotension and nephrotoxicity in patients w/ diabetes or renal impairment
