Vasotec is used for treating high blood pressure, heart failure, and other heart problems. It may be used alone or with other medicines. Vasotec is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by helping to relax blood vessels. This helps to lower blood pressure.
Use Vasotec as directed by your doctor.
- Take Vasotec by mouth with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take with food to reduce stomach irritation.
- If you miss a dose of Vasotec, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Vasotec.
