Does Quinapril help in the treatment of high blood pressure?

default
Posted on Tue, 19 May 2015
Question: I had my Quinapril 40 mg refilled today and when I was taking my meds tonight noticed it looked very different from previous Rx. It was an oval, light yellow pill; this is a round, light yellow pill with "F04" on one side and "LU" on the other. Same mfg "Blue" and everything else on the label is the same. Usually if there is a change in the appearance of a pill, there is something on the bottle stating why. Wondering if this is the same medication. I did not take the pill.

Pill imprint LU F04 has been identified as Quinapril hydrochloride 40 mg.
It is sometimes elliptical or round depending on the company that has manufactured it. It is a yellow colored prescription drug.

Quinapril is used in the treatment of high blood pressure.
Also used in some cases of diabetic kidney disease; left ventricular dysfunction; heart failure.
It belongs to the drug class angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors.

Therefore donot worry about the shape of the medicine if the contents are the same. It is indeed Quinapril hydrochloride 40mg.
