When should I call my doctor if I take amlodipine besylate and benazepril?

You should call your doctor or seek medical care right away if you're taking amlodipine and benazepril (Lotrel) and experience rare but potentially serious side effects such as swelling of the face, eyelids, lips, tongue or throat; trouble swallowing; or breathing problems.

You also should call your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet, or if another doctor prescribes a new medication, once you start taking Lotrel. Some drugs and supplements can interact with Lotrel, especially supplements containing potassium or the drug lithium. These in particular could cause unwanted and possibly dangerous side effects.
