Before taking quinapril,
- tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to quinapril; other ACE inhibitors such as benazepril (Lotensin, in Lotrel), captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec, in Vaseretic), fosinopril (Monopril), lisinopril (in Prinzide, in Zestoretic), moexipril (Univasc, in Uniretic), perindopril (Aceon), ramipril (Altace), and trandolapril (Mavik, in Tarka); any other medications; or any ingredients in quinapril tablets. Ask your pharmacist for a list of the ingredients.

Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
