Probably: You can probably get away with less medications. Your physician can decide how to go about cutting back your meds over time, if you are not over weight and have no problems with edema, the latest information says you should not be on hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) maybe that should be the first drug to go, or at least cut back.

Prefer enalapril: If taking both Enalapril and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) proves too much, resulting in a BP less than 100 mm hg sitting and standing, it would be preferable to continue Enalapril and decrease or stop hctz (hydrochlorothiazide).
