Enalapril maleate-hydrochlorothiazide combines an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, enalapril maleate, and a diuretic, hydrochlorothiazide.
Enalapril maleate is the maleate salt of enalapril, the ethyl ester of a long-acting angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, enalaprilat.
Enalapril maleate and hydrochlorothiazide tablets are indicated for the treatment of hypertension.
This fixed dose combination is not indicated for initial treatment (see
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).
In using enalapril maleate and hydrochlorothiazide tablets, consideration should be given to the fact that another angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, captopril, has caused agranulocytosis, particularly in patients with renal impairment or collagen vascular disease, and that available data are insufficient to show that enalapril does not have a similar risk. (See
In considering use of Enalapril maleate and hydrochlorothiazide tablets, it should be noted that black patients receiving ACE inhibitors have been reported to have a higher incidence of angioedema compared to non-blacks. (See
WARNINGS, Head and Neck Angioedema.)

Effects of antihypertensive treatment on ultrasound measures of myocardial fibrosis in hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy: results of a randomized trial comparing the angiotensin receptor antagonist, candesartan and the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, enalapril. [2009.03]
OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of the angiotensin II receptor antagonist candesartan with the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor enalapril on myocardial fibrosis evaluated by echoreflectivity analysis... CONCLUSION: In hypertensive patients with left ventricular hypertrophy, both candesartan and enalapril induce a moderate but statistically significant reduction in an echoreflectivity index of myocardial fibrosis.
Blood pressure-lowering efficacy of amiloride versus enalapril as add-on drugs in patients with uncontrolled blood pressure receiving hydrochlorothiazide. [2008.10]
A large proportion of patients with hypertension need a second drug to reach satisfactory control of blood pressure (BP), but there are few well-designed controlled trials comparing the efficacy of drugs added as a second option. In a double-blind randomized clinical trial, 82 patients with uncontrolled BP, receiving hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg daily, were selected to receive amiloride 2.5-5 mg/day (n = 39) or enalapril 10-20 mg/day (n = 43)...
Efficacy and safety of lercanidipine versus hydrochlorothiazide as add-on to enalapril in diabetic populations with uncontrolled hypertension. [2006.01]
OBJECTIVE: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors plus dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers or low-dose thiazide diuretics are considered first-line therapies in hypertensive diabetic patients as glucose metabolism is not relevantly affected. Most diabetic patients require at least two different drug classes to achieve the recommended target blood pressure of 130/85 mmHg. This controlled clinical trial investigated the calcium channel blocker lercanidipine versus hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) as add-on in diabetic patients with uncontrolled hypertension on enalapril monotherapy... CONCLUSION: Lercanidipine add-on showed comparable efficacy to HCTZ add-on in diabetic patients with hypertension badly controlled on angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor monotherapy. The blood pressure response rates seemed to be somewhat higher following enalapril plus lercanidipine than enalapril plus HCTZ.
Rationale for the use of a fixed-dose combination in the management of hypertension: efficacy and tolerability of lercanidipine/enalapril. 
Hypertension, a significant factor in the development of cerebrovascular disorders, heart disease and renal failure, is a common disorder worldwide. Despite the availability of a wide range of antihypertensive agents, almost two-thirds of hypertensive patients have poorly controlled blood pressure (BP)...

Clinical Trials Related to Enalapril and Hydrochlorothiazide (Enalapril / Hydrochlorothiazide)
Comparison of the Antihypertensive Efficacy of Valsartan and Enalapril After Missing One Dose [Completed]
This study was designed in order to evaluate the blood pressure lowering effect of valsartan
compared to enalapril over 24 hours after skipping one daily dose. Both drugs act on the
renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and are widely use for the treatment of
hypertension. Previous studies had a significant limitation: the effect of a missing dose was
not evaluated after the whole 24 hours post missing dose period (48 hours after last taken
dose), and as a result, it does not imitate the real life situation of a missing dose.
Effect of Enalapril Plus Folic Acid on Blood Pressure and Glycometabolism [Completed]
