Can I take Aceon if I have a history of angioedema?

Do not take the blood pressure medication Aceon (perindopril) if you've previously experienced angioedema, which is a symptom of anaphylaxis, a potentially fatal allergic reaction. Sometimes angioedema can occur for no apparent reason, and in some cases it's inherited. Signs of angioedema include swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, legs and feet, as well as hoarseness or difficulty in swallowing or breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking Aceon and call your doctor immediately.
