Ramipril - What is it for

​Ramipril lowers blood pressure by reducing the production of a substance called Angiotensin II which causes the blood vessels to narrow. When the blood vessels open up, your blood pressure will be lowered.
This medication can also be used for patients who have protein in their urine and other heart conditions.
