Can someone with a shellfish allergy take PreCardix®

PreCardix® should not be used in patients with known shellfish allergies. The active ACE-inhibiting peptides in PreCardix® are derived from the shells of arctic cold-water shrimp.

Always consult with your health care provider before making changes to your blood pressure management plan. PreCardix® does not treat, cure or prevent medical conditions. Measure and monitor blood pressure regularly. Know the signs of heart attack and stroke. Do not take PreCardix® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have renal artery stenosis, history of angioneurotic edema or shellfish allergy.
