Zestril is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It is also prescribed to patients who have suffered a heart attack and other medical conditions as determined by a doctor.
Zestril is to be used as directed by a doctor. Zestril should be taken with food to avoid stomach upsets.
If a dose is missed, it can be taken as soon as you remember, as long as it does not clash with the next scheduled dose. In this case, rather skip the missed dose. Never take a double dose.
Zestril can cause lightheadedness, dizziness and fainting. These symptoms may intensify when Zestril is used in conjunction with alcohol and other medications. Zestril is to be used with caution. In the early stages of treatment avoid driving or performing any potentially dangerous activity in case of an adverse reaction. If symptoms persist, or get worse, contact a doctor immediately. Zestril should only be used by the person for whom it was prescribed. Never increase or decrease the dosage without consulting your doctor.
