What is Enalapril?
Enalapril medication is commonly available as Vasotec in the market. This drug blocks the conversion of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, increasing the amount of bradykinin, a vasodilator. Consequently, this causes a reduction in blood pressure by dilating the blood vessels and eventually reducing the workload on the heart. Additionally, Enalapril can also reduce blood pressure by causing an increase in the amount of a vasodilator known as bradykinin in the body.
Enalapril is available as 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg tablets. Sticking to the prescribed dose is essential to avoid any adverse effects.
