When can I stop taking Accupril?

Accupril (quinapril) is in a class of drugs called ACE inhibitors. Although lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy, low-salt diet and getting more exercise, can help control blood pressure, once medication becomes necessary it usually remains so. Even if you're feeling fine, don't stop taking Accupril, or lower your dose, without talking to your doctor. ACE inhibitors are just one of many types of medications that can control blood pressure. If you're unhappy about taking Accupril, you can discuss other treatment options with your doctor, but don't just stop taking the drug.
