Quinaretic is a prescription drug licensed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. It consists of two medications: a diuretic and an ACE inhibitor. This product can significantly lower blood pressure levels by causing blood vessels to relax and causing a decrease in blood volume. Potential side effects may include headache, cough, dizziness, and fatigue.
