higher doses of ACE inhibitors

ACE inhibitors improve survival and reduce hospitalization for heart failure...but many patients don't reach a high enough dose.

Aim for doses that have been shown to be beneficial in clinical trials...enalapril 10 mg BID...captopril 50 mg TID... lisinopril 20 mg/day...or ramipril 5 mg BID.
