In prolonged use, the medication contributes to the reverse development of myocardial hypertrophy in patients with arterial hypertension and reduces the frequency of arrhythmias in myocardial reperfusion; improves the blood supply to the ischemic myocardium; prevents vascular endothelial changes caused by high-cholesterol diet.
The medication also provides cardio protective effect through the impact on the synthesis of prostaglandins, induction of formation of nitric oxide in endotheliocytes. It activates the kinin system, prevents the decay of bradykinin (increases its concentration), and increases the synthesis of prostaglandins. Altace 2,5 mg strengthens coronary and renal blood flow, reduces the aggregation of platelets. Increases the sensitivity of tissues to insulin, the concentration of fibrinogen, stimulates the synthesis of the tissue activator profibrinolysin (plasminogen) promoting thrombolysis.
The blood pressure lowering effect is observed within 1.5 hours after the oral pill intake. The maximum effect is achieved within 5-9 hours. The total effect lasts for 24 hours. The drug doesn’t cause withdrawal syndrome.
