Main Use Active Ingredient Marketed Name
High blood pressure and heart failure Quinapril Accupril

Uses
Accupril (Quinapril) has two primary functions, which are treating hypertension (high blood pressure) and heart failure. When taken, this drug inhibits the action of a certain enzyme (referred to as ACE by doctors). This enzyme is responsible for producing compounds that tighten and constrict the blood vessels, which leads to high blood pressure. Blocking it allows the vessels to widen, thereby leading to a drop in blood pressure, as well as a reduction of heart failure symptoms.

Dosage and Administration
Accupril (Quinapril) tablets are swallowed with a glass of water. A visit to the doctor is necessary, so that the proper dosage can be prescribed. All instructions given by your doctor must be followed. For congestive heart failure treatment, the most commonly prescribed dosage is 5mg taken twice per day. The maintenance dose is 10mg to 20mg per day. However, high blood pressure requires a different dosage. Patients are generally directed to take 10mg per day, and the maintenance dosage is 20mg to 80mg per day, divided into 1 or 2 doses.

Side effects
Possible side effects which patients taking Accupril (Quinapril) may notice include:

  • Cough
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Pain affecting the back or muscles
  • Itching or other symptoms of a mild skin reaction

Pain in the chest, fever, rapid changes in weight, high potassium levels and hoarseness are all examples of serious side effects that require medical care straight away. Other severe reactions may also be experienced by patients taking this drug.

Precautions
Patients who have or have ever been affected by any diseases affecting the kidneys, liver or heart, lupus, scleroderma, angiooedema or diabetes must disclose this to their doctor before starting treatment with this medication.

This drug must never be taken during pregnancy, as it may cause serious harm to the unborn child. In addition to this, patients must take all necessary precautions, such as using reliable contraception (ask your doctor about the best forms of contraception before you use this medicine) or abstaining from sexual intercourse.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Accupril (Quinapril) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
