Uniretic Dosage

You will be prescribed a Uniretic dosage based on several factors -- for example, other medications you are taking and how you respond to Uniretic. Also, your initial starting amount will depend on how much moexipril or hydrochlorothiazide you were previously taking and whether your blood pressure was adequately controlled with those dosage amounts.

An Introduction to Dosing With Uniretic

The dose of Uniretic® (moexipril/HCTZ) 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 dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Uniretic Dosage for High Blood Pressure

Uniretic 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 dose of Uniretic.
 
If your blood pressure is not adequately controlled on one of the medications in Uniretic, your Uniretic 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 Uniretic is 30 mg/50 mg. Doses above this have not been studied for high blood pressure treatment.
