Amlodipine Benazepril is actually 2 medications, it's a generic for Lotrel. It combines the calcium channel blocker Amlodipine with the ACE inhibitor Benazepril to better control hypertension and certain cardiac conditions.

The Amlodipine Besylate is just Amlodipine by itself.

Did your doctor switch you from one to the other?

Thanks Verwon,
No I have taken the one with Benzepril for a couple years now and I got the other one from my mail order refil place and I did not think it is the right drug. It is a 90 day supply and it was too cheap. So now that I know it is the wrong drug I will contact them and get the problem fixed. I still have 30 day of my right meds so I have time to get the problem corrected. Thanks so much.

I am taking 10 mg of Benazepril once a day. It is not the Benazepril with Amlodipin.
Is it safe for me to eat Grapefruit? Very confused. Thank you

No, when I refilled my prescription they gave me Amlodipine Besylate 5mg instead of the the Amlodipine Benazepril 10-20 mg. I have hadbeen some higher blood pressure readings and started checking the labels of medicine bottles and wondered if this could be the problem.??

I take amlodipine benazapril but it's very expensive. I do not have any problems just a very slight heart murmur for many yrs. Can I switch to amlodipine besalate which is cheaper?

I take both amlodipine 10mg and Benazepril 10mg but in separate pills. I think it may be cheaper that way.
