Daily Life Interactions for Benazepril Hydrochloride/Hydrochlorothiazide 10mg-12.5mg Tablet

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Moderate Lifestyle Interaction
Alcohol and Benazepril Hydrochloride/Hydrochlorothiazide 10mg-12.5mg Tablet(Benazepril Hydrochloride)
Alcohol and Antihypertensives(Benazepril Hydrochloride)
Although an interaction is possible, Ethanol (alchohol) and Antihypertensive Agents (drugs used to reduce high blood pressure) may be used together.

If the blood pressure drops too low while taking Ethanol and Antihypertensive Agents, you may become dizzy or feel faint. To limit this interaction, avoid alcohol-containing beverages while taking medicines to lower your blood pressure. Do not stand or sit up too quickly. Contact your prescriber if you have dizziness which does not go away.
