I am a 42 year old woman who's BP suddenly went from a normal 134/80 to 157/111. EKG and Xrays say my heart is good, but HP. As my Primary doctor did not even notice my swollen legs, ankles and feet I am not secure with him placing me on Benazep /HCT 10-12.5 and would like to know what it is he has placed me on.
My Pain Care Specialist who discovered my swollen legs etc and my high BP told me that my sudden high BP is likely to be the tremedous stress I am under in my home life and bad diet and lack of exercise. Could very well be. I don't feel much better on this medication and I want to know if I can be weaned off of it with proper diet, exercise and reduxing my stress?
Thank you

Most antihypertensive drugs only lower a person's blood pressure 5-15mmhg so most patients are then put on multiple medications to lower BP. The best way to lower your BP is to change your lifestyle, drugs should only be used as a last resort. You will want a diet low in saturated fats and obviously sodium that is high in fruits or vegetables. Also caffeine causes your blood vessels to constrict increasing a person's BP.

Benazepril with Hydrochlorothiazide combines 2 different medications to help lower your blood pressure, and if you are under stress, and suffering pain, it would be best to take it as prescribed, until you can get things, including your diet, under better control.

The typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, hypotension, and dehydration.

Yes, you can wean off of it, later, when things improve.

How are you feeling?
