Enalapril is an ACE inhibitor that suppresses the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, which results in decreased plasma angiotensin II. This further leads to decreased vasopressor activity and decreased aldosterone secretion.

Epaned for Oral Solution is available in a bottle containing 150mg powder for reconstitution along with 150mL of Ora-Sweet SF diluent to provide a 1mg/1mL final concentration.
