Lotrel - Overview
Lotrel is a combination medication used in treating hypertension in some patients. People who might need a Lotrel medication prescription, including generic Lotrel tablets and Lotrel 5/10, Lotrel 10/40, Lotrel 10/20 and Lotrel 5/20 pills, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Lotrel medication when appropriate to do so.
What Is Lotrel Used For?
Lotrel is actually a combination of two different drugs - amlodipine besylate and benazepril hydrochloride. Lotrel is prescribed in some people who have high blood pressure and would benefit from the combination of two medications administered simultaneously. The combination of active ingredients in Lotrel reduces the amount of angiotensin II produced, reduces the overall volume in the blood, and causes relaxation of the smooth muscle in the blood vessels. The overall effect of these actions is a lowering of the pressure in the blood.
Lotrel - Dosage and Cost
Lotrel 2.5 mg / 10 mg is often the starting dose used, after which the medication is titrated based on the health needs of the patient. Ultimately, the starting Lotrel dose and regimen used depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Following oral administration, the peak plasma concentrations of both active ingredients are typically achieved in under 12 hours in most healthy individuals. In the plasma, the active ingredients of Lotrel are largely bound to proteins. An appreciable amount of Lotrel is excreted in the urine. While branded Lotrel is expensive, generic Lotrel is affordable, costing approximately 30 cents per Lotrel 5 mg / 20 mg capsule at many pharmacies in the United States. People who will be paying for their medication directly should search for Lotrel coupons online. Some insurance plans may also cover some or all of the costs associated with Lotrel tablets.
Can I Buy Lotrel Online?
Lotrel is a prescription medication which means one cannot just buy Lotrel online in the United States as the first step is getting a prescription from a licensed medical provider. Because of this, Lotrel OTC is not available from pharmacies, either. People who need a Lotrel capsule prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Lotrel medication online, including Lotrel 5/10, Lotrel 10/40, Lotrel 10/20 and Lotrel 5/20 capsules, when appropriate to do so.
Lotrel - Side Effects
Before using Lotrel, it is necessary to discuss concerns and possible side effects with a qualified medical practitioner. Side effects that can result from Lotrel use include cough, headache, dizziness, swelling, palpitations, sleepiness and fatigue. Lotrel can cause liver and kidney health issues when used. Lotrel and alcohol use should not be mixed. People with a hypersensitivity or allergy to Lotrel or ingredients in the formulation should not take Lotrel capsules.
