Amlodipine + Benazepril Overview

Amlodipine/benazepril, marketed in the U.S. as Lotrel by Novartis and manufactured as a generic drug by Teva and Sandoz, is an antihypertensive medication which combines a calcium channel blocker (amlodipine besilate) with an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (benazepril).[1] This drug, like similar combinations, is prescribed when either agent alone is not sufficient to bring a person's blood pressure down to target range.

accidentally took 2 pills

I took one dose with supper at 4pm and accidentally took another 6 hours later. ## Hello, Vicki! How are you? What is the dosage? Taking too much could cause your heart rate and blood pressure to drop too low, which could be fatal, if they drop too far, as warned by the FDA. Are you on any other medications?

Side Affects of Amlod Benaz

I just started taking this med. about four days ago. I have been experiencing extreme diarrhea and stomach cramps. Is this one of the side effects? does the dosage need to be changed? or is another hypertension medicine recommended? Thanks in advance for your help. ## Dee, it sounds like you are experiencing side effects from the Amlodipine (muscle / stomach / headache are listed as possible adverse effects). Often, anti-hypertensive medications act as diuretics as a way of reducing blood pressure (hence your body expelling more water than usual). Your potassium levels may also become elevated. I recommend reporting this to your doctor since they may in fact need to change your dosage or switch your medication (based on what they know of your medical history). Hope this helps! ## i just...

Is grapefruit seed extract contraindicated ?

Grapefruit seed extract is supposed to be a good herbal preventative but I have heard that it is counteracts the blood pressure meds. ## Hi Carole - it depends on the specific medication which you are referring to. If you look at the combination of ingredients Amlodipine / Benazepril (as listed at the top of this thread), they are said to have a minimal/negligible interaction with grapefruit (as opposed to other meds which could be considered dangerous to take with grapefruit). Grapefruit can, however, increase your risk of side effects from this particular drug, so if you are going to take both together it is important to make your doctor aware of this since they will probably want to double check your medical history and monitor you. Hope this helps! ## is muscadol contr indicated wit...
