  • Product description
  • SAFETY INFO
  • Drug Uses

    Aceon is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to prevent heart attack in people with coronary artery disease.

    How to use

    The usual starting dosage is 4 milligrams daily, taken as a single dose or divided into two smaller doses. Your doctor may increase the dosage until your blood pressure is under control, up to a maximum of 16 milligrams per day.

    Drug Class and Mechanism

    Aceon is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by blocking ACE, an enzyme involved in narrowing blood vessels and causing sodium and fluid retention by the kidneys.

    This causes blood vessels to relax, allowing blood to flow more freely and at a lower pressure, and increasing the heart's ability to pump blood in some types of heart failure.

    Missed Dose

    Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is too late or almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take only your next regularly scheduled dose.

    Storage

    Store at room temperature, protected from moisture.

    Warnings/Precautions

    Aceon can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert.

    Avoid drinking alcohol. It can further lower your blood pressure and may increase some of the side effects of perindopril.

    Do not use salt substitutes or potassium supplements while taking perindopril, unless your doctor has told you to.

    A persistent, unproductive cough may occur. Tell your doctor if this occurs. Recovery is rapid when the medicine is stopped.

    Aceon may lower your resistance to infection. Prevent infection by avoiding contact with people with colds or other infections. Do not touch you eyes or the inside of your nose unless you have thoroughly washed your hands first.
