The drug ACERCOMP contains a combination of these active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs):
UNII E7199S1YWR - LISINOPRIL
Lisinopril is a peptidyl dipeptidase inhibitor. It inhibits the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) that catalyses the conversion of angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor peptide, angiotensin II. Angiotensin II also stimulates aldosterone secretion by the adrenal cortex. Inhibition of ACE results in decreased concentrations of angiotensin II which results in decreased vasopressor activity and reduced aldosterone secretion.
UNII 0J48LPH2TH - HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE
Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic with antihypertensive properties. It acts by inhibiting the renal tubular re-absorption of sodium and chloride ions, which are excreted with an accompanying volume of water. Potassium excretion is also promoted.
