I was recently given an RX for HBP. In reading about the drug prescribed, Benazepril HCL, 40mg, it says it is a "calcium channel blocker." I also have osteoporous and certainly don't want to "block" any calcium that might be absorbed from my daily diet. Am I understanding or misunderstanding the term "calcium channel blocker?"
