Who should not take moexipril?

Women who are pregnant or wish to become pregnant should not use moexipril. This medication can cause birth defects, so women should use an effective method of birth control to avoid pregnancy. Breastfeeding women should not use moexipril because it is not known if it passes into breast milk and can harm your baby. This medication should not be used by children under six years of age. People who are allergic to moexipril or other ACE inhibitors should avoid using moexipril. Dose adjustments and special testing may be needed if you have kidney disease or are on dialysis, liver disease, heart disease or congestive heart failure, diabetes or diseases of your connective tissue, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Marfan syndrome, lupus, scleroderma and Sjogren's syndrome.
