What is Ethics Enalapril?
Ethics Enalapril containing the active ingredient enalapril maleate is considered an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor type of medication. The tablets work by relaxing the blood vessels to allow for smoother blood flow and allowing the heart to pump blood more efficiently. The medication is used to lower high blood pressure (hypertension) to help prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. It can also be used in combination with other drugs to treat congestive heart failure.
How is Ethics Enalapril used?
Ethics Enalapril is usually taken orally 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a full glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue the treatment without consulting a doctor thinking the medication is not working as it may take up to several weeks before the full benefits of the medication are felt.
Patients using Ethics Enalapril may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Dry cough
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
The medication can be used to treat hypertension but cannot be used to cure the condition.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
