Pharmacological action

ACE inhibitor, an antihypertensive drug. Enalapril is a prodrug: as a result of its hydrolysis formed enalaprilat, which inhibits ACE.

The mechanism of action of the drug is associated with a decrease in formation of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, which reduces the release of aldosterone. In this case falls PR, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, fasting and preload on the myocardium.

The drug reduces the decay of bradykinin, increased prostaglandin synthesis. Enalaprilat widens arteries more than veins, and the reflex heart rate increase is not observed. Strengthens the coronary and renal blood flow. Antihypertensive effect is more pronounced at high levels of plasma renin blood than with normal or reduced its level.

BP reduction in the therapeutic range has no effect on cerebral blood flow, blood flow in the vessels of the brain is maintained at a sufficient level and on a background of reduced blood pressure. With prolonged use decreases left ventricular hypertrophy and myocardial muscle cells of the arteries of resistive type.

Use of the drug prevents the progression of heart failure and slowing the development of dilatation of the left ventricle. Improves blood flow to ischemic myocardium, reduce platelet aggregation. The timing of antihypertensive action by ingestion - 1 hour, its maximum is observed after 4-6 h, the effect persists for 24 hours in some patients to achieve optimal blood pressure level needed treatment for several weeks. Heart failure significant clinical effect observed in long-term treatment - 6 months or more.



If ingestion is absorbed 60% of the drug. Food intake did not affect the absorption of enalapril.


Plasma protein binding is 50%. Cmax plasma levels reached after 1 hour, enalaprilat - 3-4 pm enalaprilat easily passes through gistogematicheskie barriers, eliminating the BBB, a small number of crosses the placental barrier and into breast milk.


Enalapril is rapidly metabolized in the liver with the formation of the active metabolite enalaprilat, which is more active ACE inhibitor than enalapril. Bioavailability 40%.


T1 / 2 enalaprilat - about 11 hours is excreted primarily by the kidneys - 60% (20% - in the form of enalapril and 40% - in the form of enalaprilat), through the intestines - 33% (6% - in the form of enalapril and 27% - in as enalaprilat). Removed during dialysis (rate 62 ml / min) and peritoneal dialysis.

hypertension (including renovascular);
Chronic heart failure (as part of combination therapy);
asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction after myocardial infarction (as part of combination therapy).

Dosing regimen

Berlipril are inside, regardless of the meal. In monotherapy of hypertension the initial dose is 5 mg 1 time per day. In the absence of clinical effect in 1-2 weeks. increase the dose of 5 mg. After first taking the drug, patients should be under medical supervision for 2 hours and an additional 1 hour, until it stabilizes blood pressure. If necessary, and reasonably good tolerability the dose can be increased to 40 mg / day in 2 divided doses. 2-3 weeks. go to the maintenance dose of 10-40 mg / day, divided by 1-2 reception.

With moderate hypertension average daily dose is 10 mg. The maximum daily dose is 40 mg. In the case of the appointment Berliprila patients while receiving diuretics, diuretic therapy should be discontinued 2-3 days prior to the appointment Berliprila. If this is not possible that the initial dose should be 2.5 mg / day.

Patients with hyponatremia (sodium ion concentration in the blood serum of less than 130 mg / dL), or the content of serum creatinine over 0.14 mmol / l initial dose Berliprila - 2.5 mg 1 time per day. When renovascular hypertension the initial dose - 2.5-5 mg / day. The maximum daily dose - 20 mg. In chronic heart failure the initial dose - 2.5 mg dose, then increase the dose of 2.5-5 mg every 3-4 days according to clinical response up to maximum tolerable doses, depending on the magnitude of BP, but not higher than 40 mg / day once or 2 admission. In patients with low systolic blood pressure (less than 110 mm Hg), therapy should begin with a dose of 1.25 mg. Titration should be carried out for 2-4 weeks. or in a shorter time. The average maintenance dose - 5-20 mg / day for 1-2 reception.

Elderly patients often had more pronounced hypotensive effect and lengthening the time of the drug, which is associated with a decrease in clearance rate enalaprilat, so the recommended initial dose is 1.25 mg. Asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction drug is prescribed to 2.5 mg 2 times a day. Dose is selected taking into account the tolerance to 20 mg / day and share it on 2 receptions.

In chronic renal failure, accumulation of the drug comes with a decrease in the filtration rate of less than 10 ml / min. With CC 80-30 ml / min dose Berliprila typically 5-10 mg / day, with CC 30.10 ml / min - 2.5-5 mg / day, with CC <10 ml / min - 1.25-2.5 mg / day only during dialysis.

Duration of treatment depends on the effectiveness of therapy. With too pronounced decrease in blood pressure dose gradually. The drug used in monotherapy and in combination with other antihypertensive drugs.
