Product Information

What ACCUPRIL is used for

ACCUPRIL is used to lower high blood pressure (hypertension). It is also used to treat heart failure.

Hypertension

ACCUPRIL is used to lower high blood pressure (hypertension). Everyone has blood pressure. This pressure helps get your blood all around your body. Your blood pressure may be different at different times of the day, depending on how busy or worried you are. You have hypertension (high blood pressure) when your blood pressure stays higher than is needed, even when you are calm and relaxed.

There are usually no symptoms of hypertension. The only way of knowing that you have hypertension is to have your blood pressure checked on a regular basis. If high blood pressure is not treated it can lead to serious health problems, including stroke, heart disease and kidney failure.

Heart Failure

Heart failure means that the heart muscle is weak and cannot pump blood strongly enough to supply all the blood needed throughout the body. Heart failure is not the same as heart attack and does not mean that the heart stops. Heart failure may start off with no symptoms, but as the condition progresses, patients may feel short of breath or may get tired easily after light physical activity such as walking. Some patients may wake up short of breath at night. Fluid may collect in different parts of the body, often first noticed as swollen ankles and feet.

How ACCUPRIL works

ACCUPRIL works by widening your blood vessels, which reduces pressure in the vessels, making it easier for your heart to pump blood around your body. This helps increase the supply of oxygen to your heart, so that when you place extra demands on your heart, such as during exercise, your heart may cope better and you may not get short of breath as easily.

ACCUPRIL belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.

  • Your doctor may have prescribed ACCUPRIL for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why ACCUPRIL has been prescribed for you.

ACCUPRIL is not addictive.

This medicine is available only with a doctor`s prescription.
