Can I use Accupril if I have a history of liver disease?

If you have a liver disease, such as cirrhosis, you should be able to take the blood pressure medication Accupril (quinapril). However, your doctor will want to adjust your dose based on the specifics of your condition, and he or she will want to monitor how your body responds to the drug regularly. Stick to the dose your doctor prescribes and take Accupril exactly as your doctor tells you. If you develop any side effects while on the drug, let him or her know right away.
