Is lisinopril a generic for diovan?

No. Benazepril is an "ACE inhibitor" (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor). Diovan is an "angiotensin receptor blocker" (ARB). These two classes of medications are related in that they lower blood pressure by blocking the RAAS (renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system). The brand name of benazepril is Lotensin. The generic name for Diovan is valsartan.

What is the difference between atenolol and benazepril hcl?

Atenolol is a beta blocker and Benazepril is an ACE inhibitor(angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor) Both can be used for the lowering of blood pressure but they work in different ways. Atenolol blocks the beta-1 receptors in the heart. Beta 1 receptors usually make the heart beat faster and more forcefully. When these receptors are blocked, therefore, it leads to both decreased blood pressure and decreased heart rate. Benazepril blocks the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is an hormone that causes the blood vessels to constrict, or narrow, making the blood pressure increase. Therefore, by blocking the production of this hormone, benazepril causes the blood vessels to do the opposite, and dilate, or open up, causing blood pressure the drop. Atenolol works directly on the heart and therefore affects the heart rate more than Benazepril does.
