This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

What Accupril is used for
Accupril belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.

Accupril is used to treat:

high blood pressure (hypertension)

heart failure


Accupril is used to lower high blood pressure (hypertension). Everyone has blood pressure. This pressure helps get your blood all
around your body. Your blood pressure may be different at different times of the day, depending on how busy or worried you are.
You have hypertension (high blood pressure) when your blood pressure stays higher than is needed, even when you are calm and

There are usually no symptoms of hypertension. The only way of knowing that you have hypertension is to have your blood
pressure checked on a regular basis. If high blood pressure is not treated it can lead to serious health problems, including stroke,
heart disease and kidney failure.

Accupril works by widening your blood vessels which reduces pressure in the vessels, making it easier for your heart to pump
blood around your body. If your blood pressure is too high, Accupril can help lower it to normal levels.

Heart Failure

Heart failure means that the heart muscle is weak and cannot pump blood strongly enough to supply all the blood needed
throughout the body. Heart failure is not the same as heart attack and does not mean that the heart stops. Heart failure may start
off with no symptoms, but as the condition progresses, patients may feel short of breath or may get tired easily after light physical
activity such as walking. Some patients may wake up short of breath at night. Fluid may collect in different parts of the body, often
first noticed as swollen ankles and feet.

Accupril works by widening your blood vessels which reduces pressure in the vessels, making it easier for your heart to pump
blood around your body. This helps increase the supply of oxygen to your heart so that when you place extra demands on your
heart, such as during exercise, your heart may cope better and you may not get short of breath as easily.

Your doctor may have prescribed Accupril for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Accupril has
been prescribed for you.

Accupril is not addictive.

This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

The safety and effectiveness of Accupril for use in children have not been established.
Before you take Accupril
When you must not take it

tongue, muscle pain or tenderness or joint pain.

You have taken any other ACE Inhibitor medicine before, which has caused your face, lips, tongue, throat, hands or feet to
swell, or made it hard for you to breathe.

If you have had an allergic reaction to an ACE inhibitor before, you may be allergic to Accupril.

If you have a history of swelling of the face, lips, tongue, throat, hands or feet for no apparent reason.

Do not take Accupril if you are pregnant.

Accupril may affect your developing baby if you take it during pregnancy.
