Call : Call your doctor and explain the situation. See what they suggest. Depending on your other health issues and what the doctor needs to check before re-issuing your medication, they might be able to do a "nurse visit" for a blood pressure check and medication prescription - cheaper than a doctor's visit. Many offices also offer discounts to people paying out of pocket. Just ask.

Insanely expensive: Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) 10/20 costs $242 for 30. It is a combination of Benazepril and amlodipine. Lisinopril which is the same type of med as Benazepril costs $4 for 30. Amlodipine alone costs $80 for 30 but lisinoprilhct ( Lisinopril plus hydrochlorthiazide instead of amlopdipine) costs only $4 for 30. Call your doctor and ask for a new prescription. Is there a free clinic near you? Are you a veteran?
