What is the dosage of Valsartan/Hydrochlorothiazide?

I am taking 2 blood pressure medicines, Valsartan/ hctz 320/25 mg in the morning and at night amlodipine/benazepri 5/10 mg. I get a 3 month supply at a time. Right now I am out of the amlodipine/benazepri and have 41 of the Valsartan/hctz left. what would be the signs of me taking the amlodipine/ benazepri two times a day and not taking the Valsartan at all? Thank you

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your concern, I would explain that it is not recommendable to take concomitantly valsartan and benazepril. So, it is OK to take benazepril/amlodipine twice daily instead of your currrent therapy. If your blood pressure values are above the normal ranges, you can add hydrochlorothiazide to your therapy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
