Can Fosinopril be taken instead of Nifedipine along with taking Atenalol
Fosinopril is in a group of drugs called ACE inhibitors ( angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor). Fosinopril is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) or heart failure.
Nifedipine is in a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. It relaxes (widens) your blood vessels (veins and arteries), which makes it easier for the heart to pump and reduces its workload. Nifedipine is used to lower hypertension (high blood pressure) and to treat angina (chest pain).
Although both drugs are used to treat similar conditions they work in different ways. Each medicine has its pro's and con's and only your doctor can decide which medicine is more suited to your condition.
