Zestoretic is an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor which is used to treat high blood pressure.
This medication works by decreasing specific chemicals which are known to tighten the blood vessels in order to allow for easily blood flow throughout the body. It also works by making the kidney eliminate unneeded water and salt from the body by converting it into urine.
Zestoretic is taken orally, once a day, in tablet form in dosages which are clearly set out by your doctor.
Common side effects associated with this type of medication include dizziness, coughing, extreme fatigue, headache, pain/tingling in hands and feet and heartburn. If the side effects become serious, contact a medical professional for help.
Occasionally, Zestoretic may be prescribed for other purposes, as determined by your doctor.
