Altace HCTZ Information:

Altace HCTZ (Generic name: Ramipril and Hydrochlorothiazide) is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Altace HCTZ contains two active ingredients: Ramipril and Hydrochlorothiazide. Ramipril is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by relaxing blood vessels and by making the heart pump more efficiently. Hydrochlorothiazide is known as diuretics or “water pills” and helps control blood pressure by getting rid of excess salt and water. Take Altace HCT exactly as it was prescribed for you.
