ACE Inhibitor + Thiazide Diuretic Combinations Drug Class Overview, Drugs, Uses, Side Effects, and Interactions

ACE inhibitor + thiazide diuretic combinations are used to treat hypertension. They lower blood pressure by relaxing/dilating blood vessels and removing excess water and salt from the body. Untreated hypertension can lead to heart failure, stroke, kidney disease and other issues. People suffering from hypertension are often unaware of this until a doctor measures their blood pressure during a regular appointment. ACE inhibitor + thiazide diuretic combinations may be more effective than using just one of the two drugs alone. ACE inhibitor + thiazide diuretic combinations rarely cause side effects but are not safe for women who are pregnant or nursing.
