Question, Is this drug a Nitrate? I need to know due to another med I may be taking - this pill really helped me out but I had to get used to it as it is strong at first. Went from 160 /100 to 120/75 quickly - once I do not take it my BP goes up again.

No, it is an ACE inhibitor.

Your pharmacist is the best person to ask about drug interactions.
