What is enalapril?
Enalapril is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, heart attacks (myocardial infarction), and other cardiovascular conditions. Enalapril is part of a family of drugs known as ACE inhibitors, which help blood vessels to relax and expand, lowering your blood pressure and reducing your risk of heart attack and stroke.
Almost half of all Americans have high blood pressure, a condition in which the blood flowing through your body pushes too hard against the walls of your veins. This can lead to a variety of health problems such as heart attack or stroke.
