Can I use Accupril if I have a history of angioedema?

Do not take the blood pressure medication Accupril (quinapril) if you've ever experienced angioedema for any reason. Angioedema is a symptom of anaphylaxis, a potentially fatal allergic reaction; in some cases the condition is inherited. Signs of angioedema are swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, legs and feet, as well as hoarseness or trouble swallowing or breathing. If you experience angioedema while taking Accupril, don't take another dose and call your doctor immediately.
