How soon after starting Mavik will my symptoms improve?

Mavik (trandolapril) begins to lower blood pressure soon after your first dose, but it may take weeks for the drug to take full effect. However, because high blood pressure often has no symptoms, you may not feel any different.

If you take the medication to improve heart function after a heart attack, Mavik begins having a protective effect right away. You should start taking it within two days of the heart attack and continue for as long as four years.
