My aunt had high bp. One evening she took two pills with out any food from morning. And she died 6 hours later. Is it possible? This was told by her relatives. Her age was 36 and her bp readings are 145/95.

Only her doctor can answer that question. Her numbers aren't crazy high, but they do increase the risk of heart attack, or stroke, which can be fatal. Do you know what medication she was taking?

Why didn't she take them with food? Did she take both pills at once, or separately?

Altace contains the active ingredient Ramipril. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and hypotension. What dosage has been prescribed?
