Generic Acuitel (Quinapril 5 mg) guide:
Generic Acuitel (Quinapril) is a medication used to treat hypertension or elevated blood pressure and congestive heart failure. The drug can be used as a single means to cope with high blood pressure or in combination with diuretics.
The medication is indicated for people with high blood pressure, a medical condition that is diagnosed based on the daily measurements of arterial pressure. For different age and conditions, the normal blood pressure is different so you have to check with your doctor if you actually need the medication to lower the blood pressure or not before you buy Generic Acuitel (Quinapril).
The medication is also prescribed for congestive heart failure, the condition in which the heart is not pumping enough blood through the body and is unable to provide sufficient blood flow to the body organs. The condition can develop as a result of hypertension, heart overload, insufficient blood inflow to the heart due to myocardial infarction, myocarditis, toxic exposure (for instance, in Grave’s disease), and so on.
All drugs based on the active substance called Quinapril, including the brand-name medications and generics, are prodrugs, i.e. they are transformed into an active substance only when entering the body. The medications inhibit the natural enzyme that is responsible for angiotensin II, a potent substance that contributes to the constriction of blood vessels which leads to the elevated blood pressure, formation from angiotensin I peptide hormone.
Besides the blood pressure lowering effect, because of the decreased angiotensin release, high amounts of sodium are excreted in urine. The medication also causes elevated levels of potassium in the blood.
