How to use Quinapril Oral
Take this medication by mouth, usually once or twice a day; or as directed by your doctor. This medication is best taken on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal), or with a light meal. High-fat meals may decrease the absorption of the medicine into your bloodstream.
This product contains magnesium which can interfere with the absorption of certain antibiotics. If you are taking a tetracycline antibiotic, take it at least 2 hours apart from this medicine. If you are taking a quinolone antibiotic (e.g., ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin), consult your pharmacist for the proper times to take it.
Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time(s) each day.

This medicine can raise your potassium levels, which rarely can cause serious side effects such as muscle weakness or very slow heartbeats. Tell your doctor immediately if these effects occur.
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. For the treatment of high blood pressure, it may take 1 to 2 weeks before the full benefit of this drug occurs or several weeks to months when used for congestive heart failure.
