Product Description

Prinivil is a brand name for an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor generally marketed as lisinopril.

 

Prinivil is mainly used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. Prinivil is available by physician prescription.

 

Drug Information

 

ACE inhibitors like Prinivil inhibits the enzyme that converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II in the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone hormonal system that regulates blood pressure and fluid retention in the body. By doing so, Prinivil can relax the smooth muscles in blood vessels allowing fluid to flow more freely, thus relieving elevated blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure can reduce the risk for strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems.
