High & Low Blood Pressure board


I wasn't wondering if anyone here is taking Lotrel? My doctor has me on 20 m benazepril + 5 mg norvasc, but isn't taking one Lotrel basically the same thing. It would more convinient for me and cheaper taking one pill versus 2.
ofacto,

Strangely enough, no, your doctor is doing you a small favor.

I priced them out at my fave low price pharmacy (30 days worth):
Lotrel 5-20: $72.99

Benazepril 20: $23.99
Norvasc 5: $45.99
Total as separate meds: $69.98

Another upside of taking them separately is that it is easier for you determine which component is causeing an unwanted side effect.
