Drug Names(s): Lisinopril
Description: Prinivil is a synthetic peptide derivative that is an oral, long-acting angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI). ACEIs work by preventing angiotensin I from converting into a more potent form that increases salt and water retention in the body and constricts blood vessels, though other mechanisms, such as inhibiting the degradation of the vasodilator bradykinin, may be involved in their longer term effects.
