    Does Amlodipine and Benazepril lower blood pressure?

Posted on Thu, 27 Apr 2017 in Hypertension and Heart Disease
Question: I take amlodapine 10 and benazapril 80 and need another med to lower BP. Cannot take beta blocker due to bradycardia and diuretic increased creatinine and decreased potassium. Trying now hydrazaline but do not like tid dosing and may be causing mild dizziness. What other options do we have with more convenient dosing?

Take a long acting nitrate like isosorbide mononitrate once a day.
