hello doctor, I have been using...
hello doctor,
I have been using celebrex(200mg) for the last 10 year for aches and pain in the body and especially in the legs. Intially I was prescribed celebrax/viox but later on I continued celebrax of my own.
Recently I found I get persistent headaches and when checked my bood pressure which was quite high(175/121). Ihave been to the doctor and was prescribed remiprill (5mg). Now I get light headedness, headaches and cramps quite often. I have just found out that I can not take both of them at the same time.
Please comment on the situation and guide me what I shoud do.Thanking you.

Hello,

Greetings,

Sorry for the problem.

Please let me know a little more about the symptoms so that I can try to answer your question better. Since how long are you taking ramipril? How frequently do you feel those symptoms ? How is your blood pressure at the time of lightheadedness ?

Regards.

hello doctor,

i have been taking ramipril for the last 1 month and the symptoms are constant. i do not know what the blood pressure is at the time of lightheadedness..
i know i can not take celebrax and ramipril at the same time, so what are the medications i can take at the same time for body aches and pains and high blood pressure?

thanks
regards
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 8 years ago
Thank you for the input.

I shall try my best to explain the condition. NSAIDs like celebrex can reduce the antihypertensive effect of the ACE inhibitors like ramipril. This can be due to inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis in kidney. It can also be from fluid retention. I would recommend that you get your blood pressure evaluated again. Tylenol or acetaminophen has not been reported to have interaction with ramipril.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.
Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
