Q: 

What are ace inhibitors?

A: ace inhibitors are a classification of drugs used to treat high blood pressure and other associated problems. ace inhibitors relax the muscles responsible for contracting blood vessels, allowing the blood vessels to dilate. By causing this dilation of the blood vessels, ace inhibitors lower blood pressure, reducing the strain on the heart and kidneys. The ''ace'' in ace inhibitors stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. This enzyme occurs naturally in the body. The enzyme acts to raise blood pressure by activating the angiotensin chemical.

Q: 

Is there a risk of addiction with ace inhibitors? What are the contraindications?

A: ace inhibitors (ace inhibitors) are used by tens of millions of Americans. ace inhibitors are effective, life-saving medicines with more than 20 years of widespread safe use. ace inhibitors, like captopril, enalapril, lisinopril, and ramipril, relax blood vessels, decrease the heart''s workload, and increase quality of life for patients. ace inhibitors prevent an enzyme in your body from producing angiotensin II, a substance in your body that affects your cardiovascular system by narrowing the blood vessels and releasing hormones that can raise...


Q: 

What Is A Good Methyldopa ace inhibitor For Children?

A: Apo-methyldopa could be given as an ace inhibitor. Nu-Medopa could be given also 10 mg/kg/day in 2-4 divided doses. ace inhibitors are drugs acting on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. They are commonly used anti-hypertensives anti-cardiac failure drugs. Usefulness in children is limited for cases of heart failure and enalapril,captopril and cilazapril are proven to be safe but should never be administered without consulting a physician....


Q: 

How do ace inhibitors work?

A: ace inhibitors block production of an enzyme that helps convert the protein angiotensin 1 into angiotensin 2, a protein that makes blood vessels constrict and promotes retention of fluid, raising blood pressure. Thus ace inhibitors act to widen the blood vessels and make it easier for the heart to pump blood through the body. captopril (Capoten), ramipril (Altace), and enalapril (Vasotec) are commonly used ace inhibitors....

Q: 

ace inhibitor

A: The vessels are still capable of contracting, its just that a substance that makes them do it all the time is prevented from forming.  By relaxing blood vessels, the heart doesn"t have to work so hard as well.  This prevents the condition known as left ventricular hypertrophy, which is an overly muscular heart.  This condition is a risk factor for early death in a hypertensive patient.  Importantly, ace inhibitors have been shown to lenghten the lives of people with hypertension.  ...

Q: 

Is Avapro an ace inhibitor?

A: Avapro (irbesartan) belongs to the class of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor blockers, and they are different from angiotensin-converting enzyme (ace) inhibitors.
