Monopril , also known as fosinopril, can be used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It may also be used to treat heart failure.
This type of medication works by decreasing specific chemicals in the blood which are known to tighten blood vessels. Decreasing these chemicals allows blood to flow more easily, so the heart can pump the blood more efficiently.
Monopril is taken in the form of an oral tablet. This tablet is usually taken once or twice a day, depending on your doctors prescription. Never take more or less than what has been prescribed by your doctor.
Some of the common side effects associated with Monopril include coughing, upset stomach, dizziness, vomiting, weakness, headache and diarrhea. If the side effects become severe, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
Occasionally, Monopril will be prescribed by doctors to treat other conditions as well.
