Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors
ACE Inhibitors (examples: capoten, enalapril, lisinopril) reduce the enzymatic conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is a potent vasoconstrictor that causes blood pressure to increase. Many of the generic names for ACE inhibitors end in "pril".
I don't understand. Isn't vasoconstriction what we're after?
