A number of studies have shown that angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are beneficial in reducing symptoms and prolonging life in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). In the event of a heart attack, ACE inhibitors can be used to lower blood pressure and help lower mortality in people who sustain significant damage to their heart muscle.

Common ACE inhibitors include:

  • Enalapril (Vasotec)
  • Lisinopril (Zestril)
  • Quinapril (Accupril)
... (more)

Possible side effects of ACE inhibitors include:

  • Cough
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Increased levels of potassium in the blood, altered kidney function
  • Altered sense of taste
  • Low blood pressure
  • Swelling
  • Skin rashes

A number of studies have shown that ACE inhibitors are beneficial in reducing symptoms and prolonging life in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). These medications should be considered in all patients who have CHF. Talk with your doctor to see if an ACE inhibitor is right for you.

Common ACE inhibitors include:

  • Captopril (Capoten)
  • Enalapril (Vasotec)
  • Lisinopril (Zestril, Prinivil)
  • Benazepril (Lotensin)
  • Quinapril (Accupril)
  • Ramipril (Altace)
  • Fosinopril (Monopril)
  • Moexipril (Univasc)
  • Trandolapril
  • Perindopril

ACE inhibitors prevent the body from creating angiotensin II, a substance in the blood that causes vessels to tighten and raises blood pressure. As a result, ACE inhibitors relax blood vessels, lower blood pressure, and ease the heart’s workload.

ACE inhibitors work to dilate blood vessels by interfering with the action of angiotensin, a chemical that contracts and narrows blood vessels.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are prescribed to some patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) to dilate blood vessels.

  • Benazepril (Lotensin)
  • Captopril (Capoten)
  • Enalapril (Vasotec)
  • Fosinopril (Monopril)
  • Lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril)
