The prescription drug benazepril hydrochloride (Lotensin®) has been licensed to treat high blood pressure.

In previous clinical studies, the medicine reduced systolic blood pressure by an average of 6 to 12 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by an average of 4 to 7 mmHg.
The most common side effects of this medication include headache, dizziness, and fatigue. You should not adjust your dose unless your doctor specifically instructs you to do so. This product comes in the form of a tablet and is usually taken once or twice a day. If you have trouble swallowing tablets, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist about taking a different form.
