I take 2.5 ramipril each day, after heart attack some years

This answer was rated:

I take 2.5 ramipril each day, after heart attack some years ago.
In error, I took a double dose this morning by mistake. 5 Mgram.
Will this cause any trouble?
I am 79 year old male

Hi. That's basically the lowest dosage of ramipril at 2.5 mg so most likely you'll be fine.

If possible you need to monitor your blood pressure for the next few hours to make sure it doesn't drop below about 100/60 and if you start feeling dizzy or faint you need to call your doctor about this

Let me know if you need any more information please
