Who should not take enalapril and hydrochlorothiazide?

Talk to your doctor to find out if  enalapril and hydrochlorothiazide is safe for you.  Pregnant women should not take angiotension converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, like enalapril, as they may cause death to the fetus or serious birth defects. Also, people who are allergic to ACE inhibitors or hydrochlorothiazide should not take enalapril and hydrochlorothiazide.

If you have ever had angioedema, a sudden swelling of the face, neck, head, lips, tongue, mouth or throat, you should not take enalapril and hydrochlorothiazide.  If you have aortic stenosis (a narrowing of the main blood vessel leading out of the heart), renal artery stenosis (a narrowing of the blood vessel to the kidney), other kidney problems, heart problems, problems with your bone marrow, have had an organ transplant, have diabetes, hyperparathyroidism, lupus, asthma, take lithium,   or have problems with your liver, talk to your doctor about whether it is safe for you to take enalapril  and hydrochlorothiazide.
