Mavik / Trandolapril: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:50 by admin
Mavik, also known as Trandolapril, is indicated for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). Belonging to a class of medications known as ACE inhibitors, Mavik decreases certain chemicals that tighten blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more smoothly throughout the body. Mavik was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996 and is made by Knoll Pharmaceuticals. The medication comes as a tablet to be taken by mouth once a day. Mavik controls hypertension but does not cure the condition.

Side effects of Mavik use include, but may not be limited to, headache, dizziness, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fever, arrhythmia, swelling of the face, eyes, lips and tongue, fainting and rash.

A black box warning on the packaging label indicates that Mavik should be discontinued by women upon the onset of pregnancy. Mavik may cause serious harm to a developing fetus if used during the second and third trimester.

See your doctor if you have experienced serious health problems after taking Mavik. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
