Does Amlodipine-Benazepril that husband is taking cause any side effect if we are trying for baby ?

Good Morning, I just read the info leaflet for the drug Amlodipine- Benazepril that my husband is taking. I read the warning that stated it could caue serious harm to an unborn baby. If my husband and I are trying to conceive should he take something else? Apparently it is a risk if the women takes it but is there any risk if the male takes it? Thank you. AAAAAA

Hi Kenade,
Thanks for writing in to Heathcare Magic!
Males are too strong to get hit by this type of small things.
There is no evidence that taking these medicines by men cause any problem to the sperm or unborn baby.
They are containdicated in women who are planning to conceive because they cause lots of pregnancy problems and congenital problems in newborn.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
