can lead to cardiovascular disease. But it is important to take into account
that the use of such a drug is not a complete treatment for such a disease. The

consult your doctor about the dosage and reception mode of these pills. Reception
mode recommends taking one tablet of 2.5 mg per day. Heart failure after

should not exceed 20 mg of this component per day. Some patients may take one
pill per day, others may need two. It depends on the degree of the disease. If
it is not sufficient to use the only Altace, then a doctor may also prescribe
you another drug that you will combine with this one.
