Dose Adjustments

The antihypertensive effect of moexipril may diminish towards the end of the dosing interval. Blood pressure should, therefore, be measured just prior to dosing to determine whether satisfactory blood pressure control is obtained. If control is not adequate, increased dose or divided dosing can be tried.



Safety and efficacy have not been established in patients younger than 18 years.
