Univasc Dosage

For most people, the usual starting dosage of Univasc is 7.5 mg once a day. Depending on how your blood pressure responds, your healthcare provider may increase this amount if necessary. People with kidney disease typically start with a lower dose. Univasc tablets are generally taken once or twice a day, preferably on an empty stomach.

An Introduction to Dosing With Univasc

The dose of Univasc® (moexipril hydrochloride) 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 may be 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.

Univasc Dosage for High Blood Pressure

The usual dose of Univasc for most people when starting to treat high blood pressure is 7.5 mg once daily. Your healthcare may increase your dose, if necessary, based on blood pressure response. The usual recommended dosing range is between 7.5 mg and 30 mg a day. Doses greater than 60 mg a day were not studied in clinical trials.
People who are taking a diuretic will usually either be told to stop the diuretic for two to three days before starting Univasc or started on Univasc at a dose of 3.75 mg and continue the diuretic. Your healthcare provider will choose the best option for your particular situation.
The usual Univasc dosage when starting to treat high blood pressure in people with kidney disease is 3.75 mg once daily. Your healthcare provider may increase your dose, based on blood pressure response, to a maximum of 15 mg a day.
Univasc is normally given once a day in the beginning of treatment. If, however, once-daily dosing does not control blood pressure over the entire course of the day, the medication may be given twice daily.
