Altace (ramipril) is indicated for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) to lower blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events, primarily strokes and myocardial infarctions (heart attacks). It may be used alone or in combination with thiazide diuretics (water pills)

Altace is also indicated in patients 55 years or older at high risk of developing a major cardiovascular event because of a history of coronary artery disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, or diabetes that is accompanied by at least one other cardiovascular risk factor. It is used to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes.


  • Take Altace exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, with or without food, typically once or twice daily.
  • Swallow the capsule whole if you can.
  • If swallowing the capsule is difficult, open it and sprinkle the contents on cool applesauce (about 4 ounces) or mix it in half a glass of water or apple juice (4 ounces). Swallow or drink the entire mixture immediately.
  • Take Altace regularly at the same time(s) each day for maximum benefit.
  • Continue taking Altace even if you feel well, as high blood pressure often has no symptoms.
  • Discuss any concerns about your condition or worsening blood pressure with your healthcare provider.
  • Be aware that it may take several weeks to experience the full blood pressure-lowering effects of Altace.


  • Don't take Altace differently than prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  • Don't skip doses or stop taking Altace abruptly.
  • Don't take more Altace than prescribed.
  • Don't open the capsule and sprinkle the contents on anything other than cool applesauce, water, or apple juice.
  • Don't expect immediate results from Altace. It may take weeks to reach full effectiveness.
