Introduction

Captopril is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) which prevents production of angiotensin-II hormone in the human body. The preventive nature of this drug occurs by inhibiting a converting enzyme called angiotensin-I. It makes the flow of blood easier by relaxing blood vessels.

Use

This is a drug prescribed by doctors for patients who are suffering from heart problems and also to treat hypertension. By controlling high blood pressure, it helps in preventing heart attacks, strokes, and kidney failure. It can be used to deter problems caused by diabetes, such as kidney problems, and to build strength after suffering from a heart attack. This drug can also be taken in combination with other drugs. The protective action helps limit many problems. It eases the flow of blood to the heart by widening the blood vessels with the help of ACE inhibitors. When general medical treatment is ineffective, this drug is very useful to treat even mild to moderate high blood pressure. This drug is effective alone and also in combination with thiazides, which are antihypertensives, to control blood pressure.
