Can I take a male enlargement pills if I am taking Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril)?

Can I take a male enlargement pills if I am taking Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril)?

Not a good idea: Unfortunately, there is no FDA approved or generally accepted as safe, male enlargement treatment by pill. There are surgical procedures to enhance the girth of the male penis by injection of fat or plastic surgery to change appearance, but overall, most "treatments" to increase size without a doctor prescribing, are not effective or proven safe.

If I am on lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) is it safe for me to take a male enhancement or enlargement pill such as blue tenacity?

Harmful: To your wallet. These male enhancement products don't work, are expensive, and often have multiple ingredients which have never been studied. Best case scenario- its merely a placebo causing you no harm. Worst case- it interacts with your medications causing a potentially serious reaction. Read more

Can I safely take Norvasc and Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) interchangeably? I have a supply of both. Thank you.

Not interchangeable: Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) is amlodipine plus benzazepril. Norvasc is amlodipine alone. Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) would be more potent in lowering blood pressure than Norvasc and could cause hypotension. Take medications only as prescribed. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Can lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) be affected by a bee sting?

Can lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) be affected by a bee sting?

Unclear: Not sure what you are asking but your blood pressure can definitely be effected by a bee sting, especially if you have a history of being allergic. The sting itself is transient and if you don't have a reaction then your BP medications should be unaffected? Certain blood pressure medications like beta-blockers can reduce the effects of rescue meds like epinephrine should you have anaphylaxis. Read more
