Lipril 5 mg
Lipril 10 mg
Lipril is indicated for hypertension, heart failure and diabetic nephropathy. It works by relaxing the blood vessels and preventing them from constricting. The mechanism of action is derived from its ability to inhibit the ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme), so as to prevent the tightening and narrowing of the blood vessels.
When taking Lipril, follow your health care providers instructions. Do not stop taking Lipril or alter your dose in any way unless your health care provider advises you do so. Lipril is taken with or without food at the same time every day. Take with a full glass of water. If you miss a dose, do not take the skipped dose if it is close to your next dose. Just take the next dose and continue as normal. Do not double your dose of Lipril. If you are at all unsure contact your health care provider for advice.
The mild side effects of Lipril include dizziness, a dry cough, mild stomach upsets or pain, headaches, fatigue, diarrhea, and lightheadedness. They should not last long but if they persist or worry you, contact your health care provider. Rare side effects of Lipril include numbness or tingling in your hands and feet, tongue or mouth ulcers, an itchy rash or other skin problems, infections, a sore throat, severe chills, bruising easily, and passing less urine. These symptoms can be serious so consult your health care provider immediately if you experience any of the above symptoms.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
Lipril is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
