Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are a very common treatment for high blood pressure. ACE inhibitors include medicines like lisinopril, ramopril, and enamaril – their names usually end in “ril” or “pril”. ACE inhibitors are 1 of the 4 types of medicine doctors should choose first to treat blood pressure.
In fact, the 2nd most prescribed medicine in the US in 2016 was lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor. It was prescribed 110 million times that year. It was prescribed more than any other blood pressure medicine that year. Studies show the use of this ACE inhibitor is growing every year.
It's proven its stuff, and that's enough!
