Although it is not a cure, the prescription drug Aceon® (perindopril erbumine) has been approved to lower blood pressure in adults. As a result, this medicine helps decrease the risks that are typically seen with long-term hypertension. It is available in tablet form and is typically taken once or twice a day.
Cough, back pain, and upper respiratory infection are some of the most commonly reported side effects of this drug. However, most people tolerate it well, and any side effects that do occur tend to be minor and easily treated. Aceon comes in three strengths and is sold as both a brand-name and a generic medicine.
