Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

It belongs to a group of medicines called ACE (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme) inhibitors, which block the enzyme ACE, ultimately reducing the substance called Angiotensin II and thereby widening blood vessels which help reduce high blood pressure.
