Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Enalapril . Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:
Diuretics (eg, furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide) because excessive decreases in blood pressure may occur, which may cause dizziness, especially upon standing, or fainting

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (eg, aspirin, indomethacin)
because the effectiveness of Enalapril may be decreased and the risk of kidney damage may be increased
Lithium or thiopurines (eg, azathioprine) because the risk of serious side effects may be increased by Enalapril
Oral diabetes medicine (eg, glyburide) because side effects, including a low blood sugar level (eg, hunger, shakiness or weakness, dizziness, headache, sweating), may be increased by Enalapril
Potassium supplements or potassium-sparing diuretics (eg, amiloride)
may cause high blood potassium levels (eg, listlessness, confusion, abnormal skin sensations of the arms and legs, heaviness of the limbs, slow or irregular heartbeat, or stopping of the heart) when used with Enalapril
