Cortec Tab 10mg 20's is a pharmaceutical product with Enalapril as its active ingredient. Enalapril is a medication classified as an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. This medication is primarily prescribed to manage high blood pressure (hypertension) and certain heart conditions.

Enalapril works by blocking the action of an enzyme in the body called angiotensin-converting enzyme. This enzyme plays an important role in the regulation of blood pressure. By inhibiting its action, Enalapril helps relax blood vessels, reducing blood flow resistance and ultimately lowering blood pressure. This effect can help prevent complications associated with high blood pressure, such as heart attacks, strokes, and kidney problems.
