Capoten FAQs

How Does Capoten Work?

Like other ACE inhibitors, Capoten slows the release of an enzyme that narrows blood vessels. Without this narrowing, blood circulates more easily, which reduces blood pressure and eases strain on the heart.

What Is the Starting Dosage of Capoten?

The starting dosage of Capoten is typically 25 mg taken 2 or 3 times per day. Maintenance dosing is typically 50-100 mg taken 2-3 times per day, not to exceed 450 mg total per day.

What Are the Benefits of Capoten?

Capoten reduces blood pressure, prevents kidney failure that may result from diabetes and high blood pressure, and helps treat heart failure. Thus, Capoten helps to lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney disease.

What Are the Side Effects of Capoten?
