It depends, do you plan on substituting it for a medication of the same class (ACE inhibitors), if so then alternatives would be Captopril, Enalapril, Benazepril or Quinapril.
However if you are making the switch because of bad side effects or are skeptical that the class is ineffective for you, then you would have to switch to another class such as Calcium channel blockers, Beta blockers or Diuretics. Every doctor has his preference and it also depends on what other medications you are taking.
