ACE Inhibitor – Prescription Lisinopril
The antihypertensive medicine Lisinopril, generic Prinivil and Zestril, may also be prescribed alone or in conjunction with other medications to treat heart failure and increase survival after a heart attack. The mechanic of action of lisinopril is to inhibit the action of the body’s ACE enzymes which through a series of actions cause muscles around blood vessels to tighten and restrict blood flow.
Reduced blood flow increases blood pressure and causes the heart to work harder. Although one of the effects of lisinopril is to dilate (open) blood vessels, it does not belong to the class of medications called vasodilators.
