What are possible side effects of Mavik?

If you take Mavik (trandolapril) for high blood pressure or to improve heart function after a heart attack, you may develop side effects. Tell your doctor if any of the following bother you or don't go away:
  • cough
  • dizziness
  • muscle pain
  • diarrhea
  • headache
  • decreased sexual function or desire
In rare cases, Mavik causes angioedema, a potentially life-threatening swelling under the skin in the face, hands and feet. Stop taking Mavik immediately and seek help if you experience swelling in the face, tongue or throat.

Also, call your doctor right away if you develop signs of infection (including fever), difficulty breathing or swallowing, hoarseness, yellowing of the eyes or skin, skin rash or hives, chest pain, reduced amount of urine, numbness or tingling in your hands and feet, nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain.
