In brief: Any, if tolerated
Ace inhibitors are a cornerstone of almost any hypertensive patient, especially if a patient has diabetes or heart failure.
Monitoring of kidney tests and potassium and watching for cough or rarely rashes or swelling of the lips and eyelids are adverse effects that need medical attention.
