Vasotec is a high blood pressure medication known as an ACE inhibitor. It works by preventing a chemical in your blood called angiotensin I from converting into a more potent form that increases salt and water retention in your body. It is effective when used alone or in combination with other medications especially thiazide-type diuretics. It is also used in the treatment of congestive heart failure usually in combination with diuretics and digitalis and is prescribed as a preventive measure in certain conditions that could lead to heart failure.
