Yes, Amlodipine and Benazepril can cause a cough. The cough is more due to the benazapril (ACE inhibitor)
Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome when using Amlodipine/Benazepril:
Dizziness or lightheadedness when sitting or standing; headache; persistent, dry cough; swelling of the hands or feet.
