More about hydrochlorothiazide side effects » More benazepril side effects » How it works hydrochlorothiazide benazepril Microzide (hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ)) is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that makes you urinate more. It works in the kidneys to remove extra water and certain electrolytes, while lowering blood pressure and reducing swelling. Lotensin (benazepril) is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It blocks a chemical that tightens blood vessels. This makes blood vessels relax, which lowers blood pressure and allows more blood and oxygen to get to your heart and other organs.
