    Generic: captopril

    Trade: Capoten
  2. ACE Inhibitors - Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN

    Trade: Vasotec
  3. ACE Inhibitors - Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN

    Generic: lisinopril  -  Trade?
    Generic: lisinopril

    Trade: Prinivil, Zestril
  4. ACE Inhibitors - Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN

    Generic: quinapril  -  Trade?
    Generic: quinapril 

    Trade:  Accupril
  5. ACE Inhibitors  -  Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN

    MOA
    Inhibit the formation of angiotensin II, a vasoconstrictor, and blocks the release of aldosterone

    aldosterone = "sodium saver"

    Blocking aldosterone, sodium is released with water, potassium is retained
  6. ACE Inhibitors - Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN

    effects
    little change of CO or heart rate

    decreases peripheral resistance
  7. ACE Inhibitors - Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN

    SE
    Constant, irritated cough     N/V/D     HA     dizziness     fatigue     insomnia     hyperkalemia     tachycardia

    possibly hypotension when used with diuretics
  8. ACE Inhibitors - Angiotensin Converting Enzymes

    Primarily used to Tx HTN
