  • The above medication is given either for heart conditions or as a addition taken together with a statin, I cannot tell if it would cause joint pain although like most medications it has a good list of various contra indications Antenalol is used again for the heart so you will need to see the GP, contra indications here can sometimes be increased over time, so a further call may be needed to change this one. Only the doctor is qualified here to give advice, Personally I take above medication with a statin, because of my age.like many over 60 s You do not give your age or reasons for taking this medication I only deal here for pain support.

    Take a further look into your joint problems when you visit the doctor

    All the best

  • hello bob

  • Hi Jenf The British National Formulary says that Ramipril causes muscle cramps so I supose this is what you have ? It also has other side effects, but if you have been on it for 7 yrs you would think things would be ok. How is your Blood pressure? Always read the patient information leaflet or ask the Pharmacist.

  • Yes Jenf I was on Ramipril for high bp. My medication had to be changed for muscle pain It was changed to losarton which I don't get extreme pain from. Hope u get sorted x
