Hypertension - Quinapril suffering high blood pressure

Quinapril is a medication for high blood pressure, which was classified according to its mode of action as an ACE inhibitor.

Mode of action:

ACE (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme) is an enzyme that allows the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II.

Angiotensin II is a direct cause of high blood pressure.

They also indirectly inhibit the excretion of water, whereby its effect is increased even more.

An ACE inhibitor blocks the ACE particles and thus accelerates the production of angiotensin II.

The main effect of ACE inhibitor therapy is the lowering of blood pressure.

This happens due to the diuretic and vasodilator effect of Quinapril.

In addition, the drug decreases aldosterone synthesis and its secretion.

Since the ACE affects sodium and potassium in the body, quinapril also increases sodium excretion and promotes the retention of potassium from the urine.
