Ethics Enalapril general information

What is Ethics Enalapril used for?

Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg are used to treat all grades of essential hypertension, which is high blood pressure when at rest, by lowering blood pressure to normal resting levels; also for renovascular hypertension, which is a form of secondary hypertension caused by narrowing of the arteries in the kidneys.  Lowering high blood pressure reduces risk of stroke, heart attack and end organ damage such as kidney disease.  Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg are also used to treat congestive heart failure, by helping weakened heart muscles pump more efficiently and reducing feelings of breathlessness on exertion.  They are suitable for treatment of symptomatic heart failure and asymptomatic patients with left ventricular dysfunction, to reduce risk of disease progression and need for hospitalisation in patients with congestive heart failure.  Ethics Enalapril 5 is also used to prevent heart attack in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and reduce need for hospitalisation in patients with unstable angina pectoris.  Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg can be used alone as monotherapy or with a diuretic, which helps get rid of excess water that is retained in body tissues and can cause swelling (oedema). 

How does Ethics Enalapril work?

Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg contain enalapril, an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that prevents the formation of angiotensin II, a hormone that has several actions involved in regulating blood pressure, which is the force needed to pump blood around the body.  Angiotensin II causes salt and water retention by the kidneys, and causes blood vessels to constrict (narrow); this increases blood volume while at the same time reducing blood vessel volume, which increases blood pressure.  Enalapril in Ethics Enalapril 5 inhibits the conversion of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, which allows blood vessels to relax and widen, reducing the force needed by the heart to pump blood around the body, reducing its workload and lowering blood pressure.  This also helps weakened heart muscle, such as in congestive heart failure, to work more efficiently and reduces symptoms of breathlessness on exertion.  Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg are rapidly absorbed into the blood and are effective within one hour, lasting for 24 hours, so that you need only take one tablet a day.

What does Ethics Enalapril contain?

Ethics Enalapril tablets contain the active ingredient enalapril maleate 5mg, an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor used to treat hypertension and heart failure.  They also contain lactose monohydrate, maleic acid, sodium stearyl fumarate, croscarmellose sodium, hypromellose and purified water.

Treating hypertension (high blood pressure) with Ethics Enalapril

Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg contain enalapril, an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that is used to treat primary hypertension in people with high blood pressure when at rest, who are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke and heart attack; also for renovascular hypertension, which is a form of secondary hypertension caused by narrowing of the arteries in the kidneys.  Enalapril in Ethics Enalapril 5 inhibits the formation of angiotensin II, a hormone that has several actions involved in regulating blood pressure, which is the force needed to pump blood around the body.  Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg relax and widen blood vessels, reducing the force needed by the heart to pump blood around the body, reducing its workload and lowering blood pressure.  Lowering blood pressure using Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg reduces the risk of complications such as stroke and heart attack, due to high blood pressure. 

Ethics Enalapril for treating congestive heart failure

Ethics Enalapril tablets 5mg contain enalapril, an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that is used to widen blood vessels and reduce the force needed for the heart to pump blood around the body.  This helps weakened heart muscle, such as in congestive heart failure, to work more efficiently and reduces symptoms of breathlessness on exertion.  You may also be prescribed a diuretic to help get rid of excess water that is retained in your body tissues and can cause swelling (oedema), as a result of congestive heart failure.
