Enalapril-Hydrochlorothiazide is a combination medication that’s used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Enalapril helps relax blood vessels. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic (“water pill”) that tells the body to urinate (pee) more. This lowers the fluid and salt levels in blood vessels. Together, these medicines help blood pressure go down. Vaseretic is the brand version of this medication.

Please note: At this time, this medication is only prescribed as a refill at Dr. B.

About Vaseretic (Enalapril-Hydrochlorothiazide)

How does it work?

Vaseretic is a hypertension medication that combines two different drugs: Enalapril and Hydrochlorothiazide. Enalapril is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that relaxes blood vessels. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic (“water pill”) that helps the body eliminate extra salt and water by urinating more. This combination helps reduce the workload on the heart.

What does it treat?

This medicine helps lower blood pressure. It can also protect the kidneys and reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and other related problems.

What forms does it come in?

This blood pressure medicine comes as a tablet that’s taken by mouth. It combines two medicines in one pill for convenient dosing.

Vaseretic vs. Enalapril-Hydrochlorothiazide

Vaseretic and Enalapril-Hydrochlorothiazide are essentially the same medication. Enalapril-Hydrochlorothiazide is the generic version of this combination drug. Both contain Enalapril (an ACE inhibitor) and Hydrochlorothiazide (a diuretic), which work together to lower blood pressure.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a high blood pressure prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Enalapril 5 mg-Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg (30 tablets) start at $10.11.

Taking this medication when you have these conditions should be carefully and closely monitored by a healthcare provider.

Also tell your medical provider about any other medications you’re using before you start this hypertension treatment.

How do you take this medication?

Take this medicine as directed by your health provider, usually once or twice a day. It’s best to take this medicine in the morning. If you take it close to bedtime, you might have to get up to use the bathroom during the night.

High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.

Also, please keep in mind that it may take some time for this medication to achieve its full effect in managing your blood pressure. Don't be discouraged if you don't notice immediate changes. Continue taking your medication as prescribed, and consult with your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns.

What happens if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose of your blood pressure medicine, just take it as soon as you remember. But if it’s almost time for your next dose, just skip it. Don’t double the dose to make up for the missed dose.

What happens if I take too much?

Taking too much of your hypertension medicine can lead to serious problems like low blood pressure, excessive urination and electrolyte imbalances.

If you’ve taken too much Vaseretic, call your medical provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
