Captopril And Hydrochlorothiazide

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Captopril and hydrochlorothiazide combination is used to deal with hypertension. Hypertension may also increase the risk of cardiac arrest. These issues might be less likely to occur if blood pressure is regulated. Captopril works by blocking an enzyme in the body that is required to create a substance that causes capillary to tighten up. Hydrochlorothiazide works by helping in reducing the amount of salt and water in the body by acting on the kidneys to increase the flow of urine. Both of these medications lower high blood pressure and increase the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.
