How does this medication work? 

Quinapril lowers blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels which can reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.  

Hydrochlorothiazide lowers blood pressure by inhibiting sodium reabsorption in the distal tubules which causes increased loss of sodium, water, potassium, and hydrogen ions (lower blood volume results in decreased pressure).  It is also believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance (by relaxing blood vessels).
