Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are usually taken by mouth as a pill once or twice a day. There are also liquid oral solutions. If you are in the hospital, doctors there may also use a shot.

There are many different types of ACE inhibitors available in the US. Each has different dose.

Most people start by taking a low dose pill once a day. Everyone is different, so your doctor will work with you to meet your blood pressure goals. Sometimes that means raising your dose, lowering your dose, or adding a second dose later in the day.

Always take your ACE inhibitor at the same time every day. Morning, evening, or mid-day – you decide what works best for you.

Liquid or pills, either way – ACE inhibitors help keep high blood pressure at bay!
