Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
Converted to the active metabolite moexiprilat, an inhibitor of angiotensin-converting enzyme. This inhibition prevents the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II, thereby reducing the vasoconstriction and aldosterone secretion stimulated by angiotensin II. Also causes increased plasma renin activity.
