What Is Aceon Used For?

People who are concerned about high blood pressure medications may wonder, "What is Aceon used for?" Aceon is used for the treatment of high blood pressure (also known as hypertension). While it is not a cure for the condition, it can help to relax blood vessels, which can lower blood pressure and possibly reduce the risks seen with long-term hypertension.

Uses for Aceon: An Overview

Aceon® (perindopril erbumine) is a prescription medication that has been licensed to control high blood pressure (hypertension). However, it is not cure for high blood pressure.
 
Aceon is part of a class of drugs called ACE inhibitors. ACE stands for angiotensin-converting enzyme. Aceon helps to block this enzyme, which is normally part of a reaction in the body that causes blood vessels to narrow (constrict). By blocking this enzyme, Aceon causes blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure.
 
Because Aceon lowers blood pressure, it can reduce the risks that accompany long-term high blood pressure (see Effects of High Blood Pressure).
