Moexipril/HCTZ Dosage

Your healthcare provider will follow certain guidelines when determining your dosage of moexipril/HCTZ. For example, factors that may affect your dose include other medical conditions you have, other medications you are taking, and how you respond to moexipril/HCTZ. Your dosage can gradually be increased up to a maximum of 30 mg/50 mg per day, if needed.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Moexipril/HCTZ

The dose of moexipril/HCTZ (Uniretic®) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your blood pressure
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
 
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Moexipril/HCTZ Dosing for High Blood Pressure

Moexipril/HCTZ is a combination of two blood pressure medications: moexipril and hydrochlorothiazide (commonly referred to as HCTZ). If you have already been taking these medications separately, and your blood pressure is controlled, you will likely be started on a similar moexipril/HCTZ dosage.
 
If your blood pressure is not adequately controlled on one of the medications in moexipril/HCTZ, your moexipril/HCTZ starting dosage will be individualized based on your current HCTZ or moexipril dosage, your blood pressure, and whether you have been experiencing side effects from your current medication. Your healthcare provider may then increase the amount, as needed, to control your blood pressure. It is recommended that the HCTZ dose not be increased more often than every two to three weeks.
 
In general, the maximum dose of moexipril/HCTZ is 30 mg/50 mg. Doses above this have not been studied for high blood pressure treatment.
