How can I minimize the side effects of Accupril?

You can minimize or reduce side effects while taking the blood pressure medication Accupril (quinapril) by using it exactly as your doctor prescribes. Don't take more of it, or take it more often, than you're instructed.

If Accupril makes you feel faint or dizzy when you sit up or stand, try to rising very slowly, especially when you've been sitting or lying down for awhile.

Talk to your doctor if Accupril causes a persistent cough. Don't take cough medicine without checking with him or her because some cough medications can raise your blood pressure.
