Vaseretic (Enalapril/HCTZ)

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Prescription Required

  • Product Details


    Vaseretic contains two medications–enalapril maleate and hydrochlorothiazide–to treat high blood pressure.

    Enalapril maleate is classified as an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor; it prevents the production of angiotensin II, leading to blood vessel dilation and lower blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic, or fluid pill; it works by causing the kidneys to get rid of excess water and sodium, leading to a decrease in blood pressure.

    Vaseretic is available in an oral tablet formulation that contains 10 mg of enalapril maleate and 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide.
