How soon after starting Capoten will my symptoms improve?

Capoten (captopril) is a prescription medication that controls blood pressure in people with hypertension (high blood pressure) or who have certain heart problems. Blood pressure usually begins to fall within an hour or two of taking the drug. If your doctor prescribes Capoten for you, he or she will likely start you on a low dose. If your blood pressure doesn't improve within a week or two, your dose may be increased, and your doctor may add another blood pressure drug to your treatment plan.
