Hello, I'm using Enalapril for Hypertension, for about 2 or 3 years. My bloodpressuse was (in the evening) about 160/100. And now it's under control (<120/80). I do notice that it can easily rise when I'm e.g. Worried. My question is, the side effects mention "high potassium" but due to this medication I get a "low potassium" My doctor prescribed me spironolactone next to the enalapril to increase the potassium. Is this normal?
