Vasotec contains the active ingredient Enalapril, an ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme)inhibitor. The medication is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults and children who are at least one month old. It is also used to treat congestive heart failure in adults.

This disorder can decrease the heart's ability to pump blood to the body.How should I take Vasotec?
