Mechanism Of Action

Its beneficial effects in hypertension and heart failure appear to result primarily from suppression of the renin-angiotensin aldosterone system. However, there is no consistent correlation between renin levels and response to the drug. Renin, an enzyme synthesized by the kidneys, is released into the circulation where it acts on a plasma globulin substrate to produce angiotensin I, a relatively inactive decapeptide. Angiotensin I is then converted by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) to angiotensin II, a potent endogenous vasoconstrictor substance. Angiotensin II also stimulates aldosterone secretion from the adrenal cortex, thereby contributing to sodium and fluid retention.

 

Clinical efficacy of sublingual captopril in the treatment of hypertensive urgency

This study aimed to evaluate the response rate, clinical efficacy and onset of action of sublingual captopril in patients diagnosed with hypertensive urgency.

You can use sublingual captopril and it’s effective, easily applicable and safe treatment in the management of hypertensive urgency for 120 minutes for those who do not receive multidrug antihypertensive regimens.

 

Sublingual vs. Oral Captopril in Hypertensive Crisis

Oral and sublingual captopril is compared its effectiveness over BP decrease in patients admitted to our Emergency Department with hypertensive urgency.

Sublingual captopril decreases BP more efficiently in the first 30 min than oral captopril but this difference equalized at 60 min between both dosage forms.
