Apresoline is a vasodilator used to treat high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, and heart failure by helping blood flow more easily through your body.

Hydralazine is a direct arteriole vasodilator that helps maintain blood pressure levels by helping inhibit the release of calcium within your arterial smooth muscles. This action helps improve the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine which helps your blood flow through your body by increasing venous return and cardiac output.

Uses and Dosage

The dose of Apresoline prescribed will vary depending on the person and the severity of their heart condition being treated. Always follow your doctor’s instructions and read packaging carefully.

  • Swallow tablet whole
  • Most adults initiate treatment with 10mg four times daily
  • After 2 to 4 days, most patients increase to 25mg four times daily
  • For the second week onwards, most adults take 50mg four times daily
  • Adults shouldn’t have more than 300mg daily

How does Apresoline work?

The precise mechanism of action for hydralazine is uncertain but researchers believe that this medication works by blocking certain chemicals to help smooth arterial muscles so blood can flow more easily through your body. Part of this is thanks to Apresoline’s increase in the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine.
