Can I take Univasc if I have a history of kidney disease?

You may be able to take the blood pressure drug Univasc (moexipril) if you have a history of kidney disease. However, if your doctor thinks Univasc is safe for you, he or she may adjust your dose and monitor your kidney function. You should also be aware that if you have reduced kidney function, taking Univasc along with a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, aspirin or naproxen, can cause kidney failure.

Before you take Univasc, give your doctor a complete medical history, and be sure to include any past or current kidney conditions.
