Apresoline (hydralazine) is a medication indicated for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). This can help prevent serious health problems like strokes, heart attacks, and kidney issues.

Hydralazine belongs to a class of drugs called vasodilators. It works by relaxing the muscles in the blood vessels, which helps them dilate (widen). This, in turn, lowers blood pressure and allows blood to flow more easily through the veins and arteries.


  • Follow your healthcare provider's instructions
  • This includes taking Apresoline with or without food, at the prescribed times and dosage.
  • Take it consistently. Regular use is crucial for managing high blood pressure.
  • Continue even if you feel well. High blood pressure often has no symptoms, so keep taking Apresoline as prescribed.
  • Inform your healthcare provider of changes. Tell them if your condition improves or worsens, including your blood pressure readings.


  • Don't stop taking Apresoline abruptly. This can worsen your condition. Talk to your healthcare provider about tapering the dose if needed.
  • Don't adjust your dosage yourself: Only your healthcare provider can determine the appropriate amount for you.
