Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) such as captopril (Capoten

They include benazepril (Lotensin), captopril (Capoten
), enalapril (Vasotec), fosinopril (Monopril), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), moexipril (Univasc), perin-dopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril), ramipril (Altace), and trandolapril (Mavik).
These drugs include captropril (Capoten
), fosinopril (Monopril), lisinopril (Prinivil or Zestri), perdopril (Aceon), ramipril (Altace), and trandolapril (Mavik).
Centrally active ACE inhibitors such as captropil (Capoten
) and fosinopril (Monopril), used to treat hypertension and congestive heart failure, are associated with slower rates of cognitive decline among the elderly compared to other blood pressure medications such as benazepril (Lotensin) and enalapril (Vasotec), according to research presented at the May conference of the American Geriatrics Society.
Patients in the active treatment group were further randomized to receive either captopril (Capoten
) or atenolol (Tenormin) in standard doses, increased until control was achieved, with furosemide (Lasix), nifedipine (Procardia), methyldopa (Aldomet), or prazosin (Minipres) added (in that order), if needed.
captopril First and only ACE inhibitor approved by the FDA for treating diabetic nephropathy specifically in patients with type 1 diabetes and specifically for the brand- name formulation of the drug, Capoten
. Compliance is a concern because the drug must be taken two or three times a day, unlike most other ACE inhibitors; therefore, many clinicians prefer using another ACE inhibitor as a first-line drug.
