1 doctor agrees
In brief: Hypertension
It would be best if you ask him in a straightforward and unchallenging fashion.
Those are excellent medications for the treatment of hypertension. The combination implies you have important high blood pressure. 2 of them could be combined into generic Lotrel (amlodipine and benazepril) & so you could be on 2 instead of 3 medicines. Further history (and physical and lab) would tell us a lot more about you. Hrs www.Thepmc.Org.
