About Trandolapril Capsules

Trandolapril is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to improve survival in patients with heart failure after a heart attack. Trandolapril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently.

High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. Trandolapril comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken once or twice a day with or without food. To help you remember to take trandolapril, take it around the same time(s) every day.

What is Trandolapril?

This medicine contains trandolapril which belongs to a group of medicines called inhibitors of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACEI). It is indicated in the treatment of hypertension and myocardial infarction with dysfunction left ventricular (with or without heart failure).

How does it work?

Trandolaprilat, the active metabolite of trandolapril, competes with angiotensin I in binding to the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) binding site, blocking the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II. As is known, angiotensin II is a potent vasoconstrictor and a negative factor in renin activity. Thus, by reducing plasma angiotensin II concentrations, trandolapril decreases blood pressure and increases plasma renin activity. Furthermore, reflex mechanisms in baroreceptors are stimulated in response to a drop in blood pressure.

Furthermore, kininase II, identical to ACE, is an enzyme that breaks down bradykinin, a powerful vasodilator, to other inactive peptides. It is not known exactly whether bradykinin also plays a role in the vasodilatory effect of ACE inhibitors. However, this mechanism could contribute to the induction of angioneurotic edema that is sometimes observed with ACE inhibitors.

ACE inhibitors act locally by reducing vascular tone, but they also inhibit the presynaptic release of norepinephrine and postsynaptic activity of adrenergic receptors, reducing vascular sensitivity to vasopressor stimuli. Reduction of angiotensin II levels also results in reduced aldosterone secretion, with subsequently decreased retention of water and sodium. ACE inhibitors reduce left ventricular hypertrophy, do not worsen insulin resistance or hyperlipidemia, or cause sexual dysfunction. Trandolapril causes arterial dilation, reducing total peripheral resistance. In hypertensive patients, blood pressure is reduced without changes in heart rate, volume-beat, or cardiac output.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Being a very effective High Blood Pressure Medication, trandolapril uses include being indicated to treat heart failure (weakened heart). This medicine is used to improve heart function after a heart attack.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again. Take the capsules at the same time every day. This medicine is administered orally. Your doctor will tell you the duration of your treatment.

In high blood pressure in adults who do not take diuretics, do not have heart disease, or a kidney or liver disease, the recommended starting dose is 0.5 mg to 1 mg trandolapril once a day (1 to 2 capsules of 0.5 mg) or 2 mg once a day (1 capsule of 2 mg). If you are black, its recommended starting dose is 2 mg daily. If necessary, the dose of this medication can double after 1 to 4 weeks of treatment, up to a maximum of 4 mg to 8 mg of trandolapril daily (from 2 to 4 capsules of 2 mg).

If you are hypertensive and also have heart disease, associated or not with kidney disease, the initial dose is 0.5 mg to 1 mg of trandolapril once a day (1 to 2 capsules of 0.5 mg), and under close control of your doctor. In myocardial infarction with left ventricular dysfunction, the initial dose is 0.5 mg to 1 mg of trandolapril (1 to 2 capsules of 0.5 mg) once a day from the third day after the heart attack, and you should progressively increase to a maximum of 4 mg (2 capsules of 2 mg) as a single daily dose.
