Benace tablets 10mg are used to treat essential hypertension, which is high blood pressure when at rest, by lowering blood pressure to normal resting levels. This reduces risk of stroke, heart attack and kidney disease. Benace 10, is also used to treat congestive heart failure, by helping weakened heart muscles pump more efficiently and reducing feelings of breathlessness on exertion. Benace tablets 10mg can be used on its own or with a diuretic, which helps get rid of excess water that is retained in body tissues and can cause swelling (oedema).
Benace tablets 10mg contain benazepril, an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor that prevents the formation of angiotensin II, a hormone that has several actions involved in regulating blood pressure, which is the force needed to pump blood around the body. Angiotensin II causes salt and water retention by the kidneys, and causes blood vessels to constrict (narrow); this increases blood volume while at the same time reducing blood vessel volume, which increases blood pressure. Benazepril in Benace 10 inhibits the conversion of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, which allows blood vessels to relax and widen, reducing the force needed by the heart to pump blood around the body, reducing its workload and lowering blood pressure.
