Can I use Capoten if I am taking nitroglycerin?

Before taking Capoten (captopril), your doctor will likely have you stop taking nitroglycerin, a nitrate typically used to manage heart conditions. There are no studies of the effect on people who took nitrates or similar drugs while taking Capoten for heart failure.

If your doctor wants you to take nitroglycerin while you're on Capoten, he or she will monitor you carefully.
