Who should not take Accupril?

Women who are pregnant should not take the high blood pressure medication Accupril (quinapril) because it can seriously harm and even kill a developing fetus. Others who should not take Accupril include anyone who has previously had an allergic reaction to Accupril or another ACE inhibitor, or has a history of angioedema. This condition is a symptom of anaphylaxis, a potentially fatal allergic reaction. Signs of angioedema are swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, legs and feet, as well as hoarseness or trouble swallowing or breathing.
