  • Calcium channel blocker > Dihydropyridine

    • Lotrel
      (Amlodipine / Benazepril)
      Prescription only

      Lotrel (Amlodipine / Benazepril) is good because it combines two first-line medications to lower blood pressure, and it's available in generic. However, it can cause throat irritation or a dry cough, and you can't stop it suddenly since it can cause your blood pressure to rise.
