Instructions for Benazepril-Hydrochlorothiazide

Effects of Benazepril-Hydrochlorothiazide

A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers -- for example: 120/80. The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. During clinical studies in people taking benazepril-hydrochlorothiazide, both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly.
 
By lowering blood pressure, benazepril-hydrochlorothiazide can decrease the risk of developing health problems (such as a heart attack or stroke) that can result from long-term high blood pressure (see Effects of High Blood Pressure).
