RAMIPRIL

Ramipril is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. By blocking a chemical that usually tightens blood vessels, it makes blood vessels relax. This lowers blood pressure and allows more blood and oxygen to get to your heart and other organs. Source: Iodine

About This Data

Prescribing data from Medicare’s prescription drug benefit, known as Part D, was compiled and released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that oversees the program. ProPublica combined that data with additional information released by CMS. The data for 2013 includes nearly 1.4 billion prescriptions written by 1.3 million doctors, nurses and other providers. This database lists about 410,000 of those providers who wrote 50 or more prescriptions for at least one drug that year. Almost three-fourths of these prescriptions went to patients 65 and older; the rest were for disabled patients Methodology »
