Capoten Dosage

General Capoten Dosage Information

Considerations for people taking Capoten include:
  • Your Capoten dosage should be taken by mouth with a glass of water.
  • Capoten should be taken on an empty stomach at least one hour before a meal or two hours after a meal.
  • Make sure to take Capoten at the same time each day to maintain even levels of medicine in the blood.
  • For Capoten to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. The medicine will not work if you take in a different way than your healthcare provider has prescribed.
  • If you have high blood pressure and are already taking a diuretic (water pill), have kidney disease, or are elderly, your healthcare provider may choose to start you on a lower dose of Capoten.
  • If you do not take your Capoten dosage as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to Capoten or your Capoten dosage, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking Capoten without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
