Quinapril belongs to the class of medications called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It is used to treat high blood pressure and Congestive Heart Failure. It works by relaxing blood vessels and by making the heart pump more efficiently.
Quinapril may be used in addition to diuretics (water pills) known as thiazide diuretics (e.g., Hydrochlorothiazide) when one medication has not been found to control blood pressure satisfactorily.
Your doctor may have suggested Apo Quinapril for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Apo Quinapril, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Apo Quinapril without consulting your doctor.
Do not give Apo Quinapril to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Apo Quinapril if their doctor has not prescribed it.
We sort your medication into clearly labeled, individual packs so you can be sure you're taking the right dose at the right time.
The recommended dose of quinapril ranges from 5 mg to 40 mg daily in one dose or 2 divided doses, taken with or without meals. The starting dose to treat congestive heart failure is 5 mg taken once a day. The starting dose to treat high blood pressure is 5 mg taken once a day if you are also taking a water pill (diuretic). If you are not taking a diuretic, the starting dose is generally 10 mg taken once a day.
Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.
Medications other than those listed above may interact with Apo Quinapril. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.
Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Apo Quinapril.
Angioedema: As with other medications in this family, quinapril has been reported to cause angioedema (swelling of the mouth, lips, tongue, eye, or throat causing difficulty swallowing or breathing) in a small number of people. Quinapril may also cause intestinal angioedema. This condition develops as abdominal pain, sometimes with nausea or vomiting.
If any of these symptoms occur, stop taking quinapril immediately and seek immediate medical attention. Also, consult your doctor immediately about any unexplained rash, fever, or itching. If you experience angioedema with quinapril, do not take any other ACE inhibitors (e.g., Enalapril, lisinopril, or ramipril).
Blood disorders: In rare cases, a low white blood cell count has been reported with people taking Apo Quinapril. Your doctor may occasionally monitor your level of white blood cells by performing blood tests. Low white blood cell levels may increase your risk for infection.
If you notice any signs of infection (e.g., fever, sore throat), contact your doctor as soon as possible.
Cough: People taking quinapril may develop a dry, persistent cough that usually disappears only after stopping or lowering the dose of quinapril.
Diabetes: ACE inhibitors such as quinapril may lead to Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) in people with diabetes. If you have diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Apo Quinapril may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Quinapril, and whether any special monitoring is needed.
Kidney function: Changes in kidney function have occurred in certain people who take Apo Quinapril. The use of diuretics (water pills) or aliskiren may further increase the risk of kidney problems for those already at risk for this problem. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Apo Quinapril may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Quinapril, and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you have kidney function impairment you may require lower doses of Apo Quinapril.
Liver function: Apo Quinapril may cause liver problems. If you experience any signs of liver problems such as yellowing of the skin or eyes, fever, generally feeling unwell, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, itching, muscle pain, rash, or swollen glands, contact your doctor immediately. If you have liver problems you will need to be closely monitored by your doctor while taking Apo Quinapril.
Low blood pressure: Occasionally, blood pressure drops too low after taking quinapril. This usually happens after the first or second dose or when the dose is increased. It is more likely to occur for those who take the medication aliskiren, diuretics, have a salt-restricted diet, are on dialysis, have diarrhea, or are vomiting.
To reduce the risk of dizziness, get up slowly from a lying or sitting position. If low blood pressure causes you to faint or feel lightheaded, contact your doctor.

Potassium levels: Increases in blood levels of potassium occur for approximately 2% of people who take quinapril. This rarely causes problems, but your doctor will likely want to monitor your potassium levels through blood tests.
Reduced alertness: Apo Quinapril may reduce alertness, especially at the beginning of treatment. Do not drive or perform tasks that require alertness until you know how Apo Quinapril affects you.
Pregnancy: ACE inhibitors such as quinapril may cause severe harm or death to the developing baby if taken by the mother during pregnancy. Apo Quinapril should not be used during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Apo Quinapril, stop taking quinapril immediately and contact your doctor.
Breast-feeding: Apo Quinapril may pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking quinapril, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
