Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood on the walls of vessels when it circulates inside them within the body. Hypertension or high blood pressure is the condition when the pressure created by the blood within the vessels increase drastically. Zestril is an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor drug. The medication works by relaxing the arteries and increasing the space within them for blood passage. This further helps with efficient blood flow and better heart functioning.

It takes a few weeks for Zestril to improve the condition, but if do not notice any change, stop its intake. Regularly check your blood pressure to monitor the functioning of the drug.
