Cilazapril is prescribed either on its own or in combination with other drugs to manage hypertension. By reducing high blood pressure, it serves to mitigate the risk of strokes, heart attacks, and kidney issues. Additionally, it is utilized alongside other medications in the treatment of congestive heart failure. Cilazapril is classified under a category of drugs known as ACE inhibitors. Its mechanism of action involves the relaxation of blood vessels, facilitating smoother blood flow throughout the body.
