What is Accuretic?

Accuretic is a medication that is indicated for conditions such as high blood pressure, hypertension and coronary diseases. It contains a fixed-ratio combination of two compounds. The first active compound is Quinapril, which acts as an ACE inhibitor and causes blood vessels across the body to relax and widen, causing a reduction in blood pressure and reduced strain on the heart.

The second component is a diuretic compound, hydrochlorothiazide, which increases the release of water from the body leading to a decrease in the excess build-up of fluid in the body. It also acts against hypertension by decreasing blood pressure.

How Does Accuretic Work?

The first active ingredient, Quinapril, belongs to a class of drugs collectively known as ACE Inhibitors. Angiotensin-Converting Enzymes (ACE) is a family of enzymes that produce a compound in the body called the Angiotensin II protein. This compound is released into the blood and causes blood vessels to contract. This makes blood vessels narrow down in internal diameter, causing an increase in the blood pressure as the heart is forced to pump harder and faster to maintain a steady supply of oxygen across the body. The action on Quinapril blocks the effects of Angiotensin II in the body and decreases its concentration in the blood, causing the blood vessels to relax and widen. This decreases the strain on the heart, and the blood pressure is reduced to normal.

The second active ingredient, hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic, which increases the process of diuresis at more significant concentration, but in smaller levels, acts as an antihypertensive agent, causing a decrease in the blood pressure.

What are the Benefits of Accuretic?

Accuretic can provide relief from the symptoms of hypertension and high blood pressure. Exposure of the body to high blood pressure for increased amounts of time can lead to severe complications such as heart diseases, strokes or blockage of blood vessels. A decrease in blood pressure is linked clinically to reduced chances of adverse cardiac events such as stroke due to the decreased strain on the heart.

Control of blood pressure is essential for the treatment of hypertension and various heart conditions. Accuretic helps to bring relief from the symptoms and adverse effects of chronic or periodic high blood pressure by widening the blood vessels, allowing for the more comfortable flow of oxygenated blood across the body.

This reduced the effects of fatigue as the organs receive an adequate supply of oxygen, and various heart-related diseases and conditions can be avoided.

How to Use Accuretic?

Accuretic is available in the form of orally administered, and film-coated tablets in three distinct combinations of Quinapril and HCT/HCL. It can be used once daily or as directed by your healthcare professional in regular dosed after intervals of 6, 12 or 18 hours in multiple doses depending on the prescribed potency.

It is suggested to only take such medication based on a prescription by a certified healthcare professional after a careful evaluation of your medical history and existing medical conditions.

Use of self-medication for the treatment of hypertension and high blood pressure is not advised as the drug may have adverse reactions and interactions with any existing medication that you use.

Accuretic Dosage

Accuretic is available in the following variations with different strengths of quinapril with hydrochlorothiazide:

  • ACCURETIC 10/12.5: 10 mg Quinapril with 12.5 mg HCT/HCL
  • ACCURETIC 20/12.5: 20 mg Quinapril with 12.5 mg HCT/HCL
  • ACCURETIC 20/25: 20 mg Quinapril with 25 mg HCT/HCL.

Recommended dosage must be determined based on individual requirements. Most prescriptions include a single daily intake of Accuretic. Quinapril is an effective treatment of hypertension in doses of 10 to 80 mg, and hydrochlorothiazide is effective in doses of 12.5 to 50 mg per day. Intake can be adjusted according to the decrease in the severity of symptoms as time goes by.

What are the Side Effects of Accuretic?

Side effects of the drug are rare and may include cough, dizziness, headache, fatigue, muscle or back pain, runny nose, sleep problems (insomnia), diarrhoea, constipation, upset stomach, skin rash, increased sweating and angioedema.

Tell your doctor if you have unlikely but severe side effects of Accuretic including a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), liver failure, signs of infection, easy bruising or bleeding, symptoms of a high potassium blood level, numbness/tingling/swelling of the hands or feet, severe muscle or joint aches, decrease in vision, or eye pain.

When pregnancy is detected, discontinue ACCURETIC as soon as possible as the drug may be harmful to the foetus, and its usage is only advised under strictly necessary conditions.

Accuretic Indications

Accuretic is indicated for the treatment of chronic or mild high blood pressure and related heart conditions such as hypertension, congestive heart failure, as a supportive therapy after surgical procedures, specifically those involving heart surgery. It is also prescribed as an antihypertensive medication for conditions such as blockage of blood vessels, heart stroke or inflammation of the heart or blood vessels.
