ACCURETIC is a combination of a medicine called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor and a water tablet (diuretic).
ACCURETIC is used to lower high blood pressure (hypertension). Everyone has blood pressure. This pressure helps get your
blood all around your body. Your blood pressure may be different at different times of the day, depending on how busy or
worried you are. You have hypertension (high blood pressure) when your blood pressure stays higher than is needed, even when
you are calm and relaxed.
There are usually no symptoms of hypertension. The only way of knowing that you have hypertension is to have your blood pressure
checked on a regular basis. If high blood pressure is not treated it can lead to serious health problems, including stroke,
heart disease and kidney failure.
How ACCURETIC works
ACCURETIC works by widening your blood vessels, which reduces pressure in the vessels, making it easier for your heart to
pump blood around your body.
ACCURETIC also works by making your kidneys pass more water and salt and retain more potassium. This helps reduce high blood
Your doctor may have prescribed ACCURETIC for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why ACCURETIC
has been prescribed for you.
ACCURETIC is not addictive.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.
