(kap' toe pril)Do not take captopril if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. If you become pregnant while taking captopril, call your doctor immediately. Captopril may harm the fetus.
Before taking captopril,
- tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to captopril; other ACE inhibitors such as benazepril (Lotensin, in Lotrel), captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec, in Vaseretic), fosinopril (Monopril), lisinopril (in Prinzide, in Zestoretic), moexipril (Univasc, in Uniretic), perindopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril, in Accuretic, in Quinaretic), and trandolapril (Mavik, in Tarka); any other medications; or any of the ingredients in captopril tablets. Ask your pharmacist for a list of the ingredients.
