what does HCZT do for BP?

Just recently got told I have HBP. I was put on HCZT along with Benicar for my HBP. I don't know why I need two drugs. I read about Benicar and I don't know why I need HCZT too? What does it do?

HCZT is a diuretic. It makes you pee. It reduces the salt and water in your system to lower BP. I don't know why you need both but they are used together all the time.

Many of the ARB class drugs like Benicar, Diovan, etc have pills with HCTZ in them too. The two drugs are just more effective as a combination.
