Common Problems With Moexipril/HCTZ

Common Side Effects

Moexipril/HCTZ has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people received moexipril/HCTZ, while another group received a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
In clinical studies, the most common side effects of moexipril/HCTZ included:
  • Cough -- in up to 3.0 percent of people (see Uniretic Cough)
