Fosinopril Indication

For the treatment of hypertension. It may be used alone or in combination with thiazide diuretics. It is alos indicated in the management of heart failure.

Fosinopril Pharmacology

Fosinopril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. ACE is a peptidyl dipeptidase that catalyzes the conversion of angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor substance, angiotensin II. By blocking ACE, Fosinopril decreases angiotensin II which is a vasoconstrictor. Fosinopril is used to treat hypertension and heart failure, to reduce proteinuria and renal disease in patients with nephropathies, and to prevent stroke, myocardial infarction, and cardiac death in high-risk patients. Angiotensin II also stimulates aldosterone secretion by the adrenal cortex.
