what does HCZT do for BP?
#1
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?

#2
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.

#3
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.
