Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. FDA approved the drug so no need to worry. It doesn't produce cancer. However overall ACE inhibitors are good drugs for hypertension. It also causes remodeling of heart. So ACE inhibitors are the preferred drugs for hypertension. Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
