Enalapril–Information, Dosage, Cost without Insurance

March 6, 2021

Enalapril is an ACE inhibitor, a drug that inhibits angiotensin-converting enzyme. This inhibition relaxes blood vessels, lowering blood pressure. Enalapril is often given along with a diuretic (water pill) to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Treating hypertension helps to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and kidney disease. It is prescribed for patients whose hearts are failing due to pressure on the heart’s left ventricle, the part of the heart that pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of the body. It is also given to diabetic patients to prevent diabetic kidney disease.
