Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) used
Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) are used to treat essential hypertension, which is high blood pressure when at rest, by lowering blood pressure to normal resting levels; also for renovascular hypertension, which is a form of secondary hypertension caused by narrowing of the arteries in the kidneys. Lowering high blood pressure reduces risk of stroke, heart attack and end organ damage such as kidney disease. Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) is also used to treat congestive heart failure, by helping weakened heart muscles pump more efficiently and reducing feelings of breathlessness on exertion; also for asymptomatic patients with left ventricular dysfunction, to reduce risk of disease progression and need for hospitalisation in patients with congestive heart failure. If used within 24 hours of a heart attack, Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) can help prevent heart failure, in conjunction with other heart medications, and improve survival. Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) can be used alone as monotherapy or with a diuretic, which helps get rid of excess water that is retained in body tissues and can cause swelling (oedema).
Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) work
Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) contain enalapril, an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that prevents the formation of angiotensin II, a hormone that has several actions involved in regulating blood pressure, which is the force needed to pump blood around the body. Angiotensin II causes salt and water retention by the kidneys, and causes blood vessels to constrict (narrow); this increases blood volume while at the same time reducing blood vessel volume, which increases blood pressure. Arrow-Lisinopril (Lisinopril Tablets) inhibits the conversion of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, which allows blood vessels to relax and widen, reducing the force needed by the heart to pump blood around the body, reducing its workload and lowering blood pressure. This also helps weakened heart muscle, such as in congestive heart failure, to work more efficiently and reduces symptoms of breathlessness on exertion.
