Enapril HT 10+25 mg is a combination drug for treating high blood pressure and cardiac failure or post-myocardial infarction. It is used alone or with other drugs to treat heart ailments like congestive heart failure. This is one of the most popular drugs prescribed for treating hypertension. Enapril HT helps to control blood pressure when a single medication becomes ineffective. The drug works to reduce the chance of stroke and future heart attacks.
Enapril contains Enalapril Maleate and Hydrochlorothiazide (Hctz), which belongs to the Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) class. ACE is involved in converting Angiotensin-I into Angiotensin-II (a Vasoconstrictor). As a result, the blood vessels are dilated, and blood flows more easily through dilated vessels, reducing blood pressure. In other words, our heart can pump blood more easily.
Hctz, on the other hand, is a diuretic drug that removes excess water and salts from the blood in the form of urine. It reduces the volume of the blood and thus decreases the cardiac output.

All medicines have side effects; sometimes, they are serious, but most of the time, they are not. Side effects vary from person to person. Some common side effects are headache, nausea, tiredness, vomiting, severe sweating, muscular pain, blurred vision, dry cough, depression, confusion, chest pain, pancreatitis, and tachycardia.
A doctor will prescribe the best suitable dose after monitoring your condition. It is very important to consume medicine at the right time.
Orally consume the tablet with a glass of water or as directed by your doctor. Do not crush or chew the tablets. This medicine can be taken with or without food. It is best to take it at the same time each day because it shows the best results and will help you remember the time to take the drug.
It is important to take the drug as long as the doctor directs. During the treatment of high blood pressure, it may take many months before you start getting the full benefits of the drug. Hence, before stopping the drug intake, always consult your physician because the sudden discontinuation of the drug may result in severe adverse reactions.
