Benazeprilum review

Benazeprilum is an angiotensin-covering enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. This means that it regulates a chemical in our bodies that tightens blood vessels, letting blood flow more smoothly and more easily. It can even help weak hearts pump blood more efficiently. These factors are what make Benazeprilum a potent prescription medication for high blood pressure. Its most popular brand name is Lotensin.

It is extremely important to note that Benazeprilum is very dangerous for fetuses. It can cause serious injury, malformation, and even death to unborn babies. Women who are beyond their third month of pregnancy should not take Benazeprilum. A woman who becomes pregnant while taking this medication should immediately inform her physician.

People who have allergies to ACE inhibitors should not take this medication. Those who have high levels of potassium in their bodies or are currently taking potassium supplements should take this medication with caution, as Benazeprilum combined with these can lead to near-fatal levels of potassium. There are also several other medicines that may interact with Benazeprilum and have severe results, such as Lithium, diuretics, and diabetes medication. Inform your doctor if you are taking any of these medications beforehand to ensure your safety.

Benazeprilum has been approved for use in patients 6 years old and up when the doctor sees it appropriate to use this medication.

Benazeprilum, taken orally, may be taken on an empty stomach and is usually taken one or two times a day. If your physician prescribes otherwise, however, you should follow their prescription. If a dosage is missed, take it as soon as you remember, but do not take more than the prescribed amount at one time to compensate. In case of accidental overdose, immediately seek medical attention.

Avoid consuming alcohol if you are taking Benazeprilum, as it may emphasize the side effects. Make sure to inform your doctor beforehand if you are combining Benazeprilum with other type of medication to be certain that it will not be detrimental to your health. Do not perform any potentially dangerous tasks, such as driving, until you are sure of Benazeprilum’s effects on you. On occasion, the medication has been found to cause extreme sleepiness in patients.

As previously mentioned, avoid high-potassium foods. Your physician may also prescribe low salt and low sodium diets. Follow the diet closely.

Benazeprilum is a generally stable medication. Studies have shown that its side effects are minimal and usually pass quickly. Among these side effects are headaches, drowsiness, persistent dry cough, and slight nausea. Unless these are severe, there is no need to worry. Do inform your doctor right away, however, if you experience fever, irregular heartbeat, hoarseness, swelling, fainting, and jaundice. These might be indicative of graver, more serious effects.

Have regular blood tests to make sure there are no adverse long-term effects. Also inform your doctor if you expect to have medical or dental surgery.

Benazeprilum must be stored at room temperature in a dry location in a tightly sealed container.
