Question: Why change for quinapril to telmisartan when blood presure was constant with quinapril. With telmisartan the blood vessel varies from 60/70 in the morning & evening. However blood pressure it low during the day 40/50?

Brief Answer:
please explain further

Detailed Answer:

what do you mean by '60/70'? Are you talking about the diastolic blood pressure? What about the systolic blood pressure?

It is true that a successful regimen should not be changed but I'm sure your doctor wouldn't have changed the regimen if everything was perfect, so please give me more details.

Kind Regards!

I take quinapril for hypertension. It has been very successful for me for over 15 years. Is there a risk or issue if I were to change to enalapril? Both are ACE inhibitors, but it will be much more economical for me to change since others in my household take enalapril. Would the dosage be the same?
