What should I avoid while taking ramipril?

Avoid drinking alcohol while taking ramipril, since it may cause increased dizziness. Avoid activities that quickly dehydrate you, as this could cause a serious drop in blood pressure. Your doctor also may change your prescriptions for some other medications or ask you to stop taking them before you take ramipril, depending on your conditions. Avoid food additives or supplements that contain potassium; ramipril may increase your potassium levels. Not smoking may improve your circulation, increasing the benefits of ramipril. Eat a healthy diet to receive the best results from your medication.
