How does this medication work? What will it do for me?

Trandolapril belongs to the class of medications called ACE inhibitors. It is used to treat high blood pressure. It works by relaxing blood vessels and by making the heart pump more efficiently. It is also used after heart attacks to reduce the risk of another heart attack and prevent the onset or worsening of congestive heart failure.

This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of this medication may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of this medication may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking this medication, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor.

Do not give this medication to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take this medication if their doctor has not prescribed it.

How should I use this medication?

For treatment of high blood pressure, the recommended adult starting dose is 1 mg once daily with increases in dose every 2 to 4 weeks until blood pressure is controlled. The maximum recommended dose is 4 mg once daily.

After a heart attack, the recommended starting dose is 1 mg once daily starting no earlier than the third day after the heart attack has taken place. After 2 days, the recommended dose is increased to 2 mg once daily and after one month, the recommended dose is increased to 4 mg once daily if the medication is tolerated.

Trandolapril may be taken with or without food.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that this medication be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
