Without a Script

Quinapril contains two medications, quinapril and hydrochlorothiazide.
Quinapril is prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure and management of edema.
Quinapril is prescribed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
Hydrochlorothiazide increases the amount of urine you make, removing extra water and salt from your body.
Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.
Quinapril belongs to a class of drugs known as ACE inhibitors. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.
These drugs are prescribed together when one medicine is not controlling your blood pressure.
