For the original poster, these are all medications used to treat high blood pressure and some other conditions.

Benazepril is the active ingredient in Lotensin is available coupled with Amlodipine under the trade name Lotrel. This combines a calcium channel blocker with an angotensin inhbitor.

Lisinopril works by relaxing the blood vessels, so your heart does not have to work so hard, to lower your blood pressure.

That said, many doctors commonly swich between these medications, until they find the correct one that helps control your blood pressure.

You should follow their instructions for doing so and if you do experience any problems, contact them immediately. Some people experience problems, some do not.

Robert, we do no sell any medications, this is an information only website.

The price of the medication at any given pharmacy or by mail order, is going to vary depending on dosage, frequency of dosing and whether you are looking for the generic or name brand.

Have you tried calling around to various pharmacies for a price quote?

I have been on Amlodipine 5mg for some 2 years. I now suffer from swollen ankles. My doctor suggest I stop Amlodipine and watch my BP. How quickly might this result in a reduction of swollen ankles ?
