Blood Pressure Home > Lotensin HCT Medicine

In some cases, high blood pressure can be controlled with lifestyle changes. If that isn't sufficient, your healthcare provider may recommend a medicine. Lotensin HCT® (benazepril hydrochloride and hydrochlorothiazide) is just one of the many drugs approved to treat high blood pressure (also known as hypertension). It comes in tablet form and is generally taken once a day.
Most people have no problems during treatment with Lotensin HCT; however, side effects are possible and can include a cough, dizziness, or fatigue, among other things. In addition, tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines, vitamins, and supplements you are taking, as drug interactions are possible.
