This study highlights our experience with 53 patients with mild to moderate hypertension who had monotherapy with Enalapril, one of the newer Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitors. Enalapril was found to be effective in controlling blood pressure in 41 patients (77%). In 12 patients (23%) addition of one more drug was necessary for control of hypertension. Side effects were noted in 9 patients (17%). In two patients the adverse reactions were severe enough to warrant withdrawal of the drug.
