Aceon is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by blocking ACE, an enzyme involved in narrowing blood vessels and causing sodium and fluid retention by the kidneys.
This causes blood vessels to relax, allowing blood to flow more freely and at a lower pressure, and increasing the heart's ability to pump blood in some types of heart failure.
Generic name of Aceon is Perindopril.
Brand name of Aceon is Aceon.
Aceon is available in:
- 2mg Min Dosage
- 4mg Low Dosage
- 8mg Standard Dosage
The usual starting dosage is 4 milligrams daily, taken as a single dose or divided into two smaller doses.
If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Aceon suddenly.
Missing a dose
Do not take double dose. If you miss a dose you should take it as soon as you remember about your missing. If it is the time for the next dose you should continue your regular dosing schedule.
If you overdose Aceon and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.
