This paper aims to research the clinical effect and security of using amlodipine and enalapril together to cure hypertension of aged people. Random number table was used to divide clinical data of 114 aged hypertensives into two groups: control group (treat with only amlodipine) and observation group (treat with both amlodipine and enalapril). We formulated evaluation standard and compared the effects in pretherapy and post-treatment of two groups. Results showed that the total effective rate of control group was 59.6% and the total effective rate of observation group was 87.5% and blood pressure was lower. These findings suggest that amlodipine together, with enalapril has outstanding curative effect in hypertension treatment of the aged, they can effectively control the blood pressure, the security is fine and it deserves the popularization and application clinically.
