Hydralazine Drug Information

Medication Information: Most people have high blood pressure (hypertension) and feel unwell. The important thing is that high blood pressure should be treated even if you are feeling well. If left untreated, it is a risk factor that can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other serious illnesses. Hydralazine is prescribed along with other medicines to control high blood pressure.

Hydralazine works by relaxing the muscles in the walls of blood vessels. This means that it dilates blood vessels, lowers blood pressure, and allows blood and oxygen to circulate more freely around the body. If other treatments are not suitable or effective for you, hydralazine may be prescribed. Just as hydralazine can increase the amount of water and salt in your body, it can also increase your heart rate. Other medications that are prescribed with you will help control these side effects.

Hydralazine is sometimes prescribed by doctors for other heart conditions. If you have been prescribed hydralazine for any reason other than high blood pressure, talk to your doctor if you have any questions about treatment.
