Uses
Accupril (Quinapril) is an antihypertensive medicine which works by inhibiting ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme). This allows for a reduction in blood pressure. In the body, there is a hormone system known as the renin-angiotensin system (RAS), and its function is to control the levels of fluids in the body, as well as the blood pressure.

The RAS also controls the conversion of angiotensin I into angiotensin II. This is catalyzed by the ACE (angiotensin enzyme), and the production of angiotensin II (which has vasoconstrictive properties) can lead to the tightening of the blood vessels, which results in high blood pressure.

It can also affect the secretion of aldosterone and increase fluid levels in the body, yet another way in which it contributes to high blood pressure. By blocking the ACE, the production of angiotensin II is inhibited, and it is prevented from constricting the veins. This leads to better control and management of blood pressure, and doctors often combine medical treatment with other measures (such as diet and exercise) so as to ensure that the optimum results are achieved.

Dosage and Administration
Accupril (Quinapril) tablets each contain 5mg of the active ingredient. Various factors will be taken into consideration by your doctor when determining the frequency of administration. The dosage is normally different for patients who are taking it as a monotherapy (on its own) to those who are being given it concomitantly with diuretics. Doctors normally direct adults who are also being treated with a diuretic to start treatment with 5mg per day. This is to ensure that excessively low blood pressure (hypotension) does not occur. After this, the doctor may decide to titrate the dosage so as to achieve the most effective results.
