Reviews for Enalapril
For High Blood Pressure: "My blood pressure used to average 150/100, so a doctor put me on Enalapril 5 mg. Within 6 days I had to go to an optician to check my eyes because my vision became so blurry. In addition I developed an extremely dry mouth and drinking water didn't help. I also got a sore throat for two days. My blood pressure went down somewhat to 130/90. However a different doctor discontinued the enalapril and put me on Zaart h. A day later after taking the Zaart h my vision has improved and my pressure is at 104/74. Never taking enalapril again."

Vasotec (enalapril) for Left Ventricular Dysfunction: "This medication worked great for me as far as keeping my BP in check while I recovered from heart failure. I did have some mild coughing and dizziness if I got up too fast, but nothing I couldn't handle. After being on this for 1 1/2 years I developed angioedema - swelling of lip and face. Was immediately taken off the meds, told to take some Benadryl. The symptoms went away and I was put on a different medication."

For High Blood Pressure: "I was taking Atenolol which wasn't working as well as it should but was keeping my Blood Pressure in somewhat reasonable range. Doctor switched me to Enalapril, hoping it would work better than the Atenolol. It didn't. Blood Pressure went up and stayed very high, pulse also went up and stayed high as well. Had some mild fainting spells as well. I'm sure it works for some people, but not for me."

For High Blood Pressure: "Have had great blood pressure readings ever since I started taking Enalapril. However, I have had severe coughing. I may need to find another blood pressure med. My coughing interrupts my sleeping and causes me to vomit on occasion. Nobody can stand to be around me!"

For High Blood Pressure: "I rated this an 8 because I don't have anything to compare it to, but as far as reducing my blood pressure, it works very well. I can tell when I haven't taken my daily dose because I get clammy and hot and all of the effects associated with high blood pressure. When I do take it, those effects subside and my blood pressure drastically drops to a normal level. Works good for me. I am going to try my next month on Lisinopril, and see how that works out. "

For Left Ventricular Dysfunction: "I'm sure that this medicine works wonders for those who can tolerate it, but not me. I was on it for 6 to 7 weeks and couldn't finish a sentence without coughing every two words. The worst part though is that it caused me to develop a case of pancreatitis after 7 weeks which kept me in the hospital for 10 days and was unable to eat for 10 days and not able to drink fluids for 5 days. I lived on IV fluids. I hope everyone else has better luck."

For : "This is a wonderful drug. I was a test subject in the Pediatric Clinical Trials for Enalapril. I've never had an issue with it, even in trials. It's always done its job with no side effects at least for me."

For Left Ventricular Dysfunction: "Enalapril has been shown to prevent the remodeling of heart structure. This is the most important drug that my 20 year old son takes with respect to delaying transplant. His ventricular function has not deteriorated since starting enalapril 9 years ago and his cardiologist tells him to take this medication religiously."
