  • Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed): Benazepril [BOOK]
    Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed). National Library of Medicine (US): Bethesda (MD)BOOK
  • Because of the low levels of benazepril in breastmilk, amounts ingested by the infant are small and would not be expected to cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants.
  • Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed): Amlodipine [BOOK]
    Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed). National Library of Medicine (US): Bethesda (MD)BOOK
  • Limited information indicates that milk levels of amlodipine are usually low and plasma levels in breastfed infants are undetectable. Maternal use of amlodipine during breastfeeding has not caused any adverse effects in breastfed infants. If amlodipine is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding.
  • Renoprotective effects of benazepril: current perspective. [Review]
    Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2011 Jun; 9(6):663-73.Stompór T, Napora M, Olszewski A
  • Cardiovascular (CV) disease, its associated risk factors and continued progression run in parallel with renal deterioration (cardio-renal syndrome). Most guidelines promote early treatment, including the use of ACE inhibitors to control CV risk in patients with chronic renal failure. The renoprotective effects of the ACE inhibitor, benazepril, independent of blood pressure control, have been demo…
  • Effects of different ACE inhibitor combinations on albuminuria: results of the GUARD study. [Randomized Controlled Trial]
    Kidney Int. 2008 Jun; 73(11):1303-9.Bakris GL, Toto RD, … GUARD (Gauging Albuminuria Reduction With Lotrel in Diabetic Patients With Hypertension) Study Investigators
  • Clinical practice guidelines recommend blockers of the renin-angiotensin system alone or in combination with other agents to reduce blood pressure and albuminuria in patients with type 2 diabetes. Dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers, however, may lower blood pressure but not albuminuria in these patients. Here we tested the hypothesis that combining an ACE inhibitor with either a thiazide di…
  • Creating a combination antihypertensive regimen: what does the research show? [Journal Article]
    J Clin Hypertens (Greenwich). 2003 Jul-Aug; 5(4 Suppl 3):12-20.Weber MA
  • Major randomized clinical trials have demonstrated unquestionable clinical benefits of lowering blood pressure without establishing superiority of any specific antihypertensive medication. Most notably, these trials have indicated that a majority of patients with hypertension will require more than one drug to control blood pressure. The recognition that many patients with hypertension should rec…
  • Amlodipine/benazepril: fixed dose combination therapy for hypertension. [Review]
    Expert Opin Pharmacother. 2001 Jan; 2(1):165-78.Faulkner MA, Hilleman DE
  • Myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure and end-stage renal disease have all been linked to inadequate control of blood pressure. Despite overwhelming evidence that uncontrolled hypertension is responsible for a sizeable number of adverse health-related outcomes, control of the disease remains considerably suboptimal. Available data demonstrate that in order to achieve adequate blood pressur…
