Is A Prescription Required To Purchase Prinivil?

A Prescription is required to acquire Prinivil from licensed online Canadian pharmacies.

What Is The Drug Prinivil For?

The medication Prinivil is used for the treatment of high blood pressure and heart failure. It is also used to reduce the risk of having another heart attack. It can be used alone or along with other medications to treat the above-mentioned conditions.

How Does Prinivil Work In The Body?

Prinivil (lisinopril) belongs to a class of drugs known as Angiotensin Converting Enzymes (ACE) inhibitors. These medications block the chemical called Angiotensin II which is responsible for the increase in blood pressure. ACE inhibitors such as Prinivil reduce the amount of Angiotensin II in the body that helps the blood vessels to relax and become wider. This makes it easier for the blood to flow through your blood vessels, thus decreasing the blood pressure. Lowering of blood pressure also makes it easier for your heart to pump blood. Prinivil does not help cure high blood pressure or congestive heart failure but can control these conditions.

What is the generic form of Prinivil?

The generic form of Prinivil is lisinopril and is manufactured by Sandoz.

How Is Prinivil Supplied and Stored?

The generic version of Prinivil (lisinopril) is available in 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg dosage forms in the packaging of 100 tablets.

The medication should be stored at a temperature between 15°C and 30°C, in the original packing, away from sunlight, heat and damp places. It should be kept out of sight and reach of children.

Is Prinivil A Beta Blocker?

Prinivil is not a beta-blocker. It belongs to a class of drugs known as Angiotensin Converting Enzymes (ACE) inhibitors and acts by blocking a chemical called Angiotensin II.

Is Coughing A Side Effect Of Lisinopril?

Can Lisinopril Cause Fluid Retention?

Lisinopril does not cause fluid retention in the body. In fact, it helps to reduce the blood pressure by lowering the amount of water your body retains.

What Is The Best Time Of Day To Take Lisinopril?
