Cilazapril in hypertension

ACE inhibitor cilazapril helps with high blood pressure
Cilazapril in hypertension


(Group of ACE inhibitors)

Cilazapril comes from the family of ACE inhibitors.

This prescribed drug has blood pressure-lowering properties and is also used in the treatment of heart failure.

The action is based on inhibition of the enzyme ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) and thus reduces the formation of angiotensin II.

Thus, cilazapril is hypotensive and provides heart relief.

Cilazapril is a so-called prodrug, i.e. a drug which is rapidly converted into a different form, in this case, cilazaprilat.

Trade names are:

- Inhibace (tablets containing 0.5 mg, 1 mg, 2.5 mg and 5 mg) from Roche Pharma AG

- Dynorm (tablets containing 0.5 mg, 1 mg and 2.5 mg and 5) also Roche Pharma AG

It should be taken once a day (always at the same time) and independently of mealtimes.

The most common side effects are angina pectoris, shortness of breath, skin rashes, hypotension, headaches, fatigue, coughs and hypersensitivity.
