Lotensin HCT (benazepril / hydrochlorothiazide) for High Blood Pressure "After taking this for ten years, there was a mix-up with the pharmacy and when my prescription ran out 2 months ago, I assumed they had called the doctor as they had in the past. Since I had been to see her the month before the script ran out, I thought she had just not renewed it as I had been on it for a long time. Today, I found out differently when I went for my 6-month check-up. My blood pressure had skyrocketed! Needless to say, I am back on it. Lesson learned, I will not let this happen again!"

For High Blood Pressure "Hello.....So I have been on this med for about 2 months. Its not as bad as I thought!. I am always afraid to try any meds. Bcuz I have bad anxiety. I don't take meds for that. I just try & keep busy, etc. So Benazapril works well for me!. I take 20/25 .....The only thing is it did increase anxiety a few times, & gave me a headache the first week. Everyone is different. Try it if thats what the Dr. Prescribed! I hate taking BP pills but I have tried everything!. Walking daily, eating healthy, No Caffeine for a month, The list goes on! GENETICS wins ! My Mom has struggled with BP. And My Aunts. So now its my turn I guess. Ugh! Good luck & stay healthy! This med is not bad .....Try it & After a week you will see if its right for you. There are sooooo many different meds out there. If this doesn't work for you. Try something else!:)"

For High Blood Pressure "It's been okay it hasn't lowered my blood pressure as much as I had hoped it would. I am still having headaches due to high blood pressure. I am hoping it gets better."
