How do you take ACE inhibitors?
ACE inhibitors usually come as a tablet or pill. You should take your medication exactly as your doctor has prescribed it to you. Swallow your tablets whole with a drink of water, without chewing or crushing them.
If you miss a pill, vomit or have severe diarrhoea after taking your pill, take the next dose as usual.
You should try to stick to a regular routine and take your medication at the same time every day. If you find that you often forget to take it, setting a reminder can help.
Taking your medication irregularly will make it less effective. Talk to your nurse or doctor if you’re worried you’ve missed too many doses.
