WHAT Tritace PLUS AND WHAT IT IS USED
Tritace Plus is a combination of two medicines called ramipril and hydrochlorothiazide.
Ramipril belongs to a group of medicines called "ACE inhibitors" (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme). It works by:
Reduces your body's production substances that may increase blood pressure;
Helps to relax and widen your blood vessels;
Helps the heart easier to pump blood around your body.
Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a group of medicines called "thiazide diuretics" or water tablets. It works by increasing the amount of urine you produce. This lowers your blood pressure.
Tritace Plus is used to treat high blood pressure. The two active substances work together to lower your blood pressure. They are used together when treatment with only one of the two is not enough.
