Blood Pressure Home > Enalapril
Enalapril, a medication belonging to the class of drugs called ACE inhibitors, is licensed to treat high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and left ventricular dysfunction. It works by blocking the angiotensin-converting enzyme, causing blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure. Enalapril comes in tablet form and is generally taken once or twice per day. Possible side effects include cough, headache, and fatigue.
