Aceon Plus is a combination of Perindopril and Indapamide. It is an ACE inhibitor and is used to help treat blood pressure, as well as preventing other health risks that may occur when one has high blood pressure (such as strokes). The ACE inhibitors inside the Perindopril work by slowing down the production of angiotensin which results in wider blood vessels and easier blood flow. The Indapamide, the other active ingredient that makes up Aceon Plus, is a diuretic, more commonly known as water pills. They are often added into drugs to lower blood pressure even more. It does this by taking more sodium from your kidneys to be released into your urine. When there are excess amounts of sodium in your urine, more water will be taken from your blood to also be added to your urine. When this happens, it reduces the amount of fluid thus reducing pressure.
Aceon Plus is available in 4MG/1.25MG dosages.
