Who should not take Univasc?

You should not take the blood pressure drug Univasc (moexipril) if you're allergic to it. You also should not take it if you've had a reaction to any drug in its class (angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, or ACE inhibitors) that included swelling of the face, eyes, lips, tongue, arms or legs. This may be a condition called angioedema, which can be serious or even life threatening.

You should not take Univasc if you are pregnant, because it is harmful to a developing fetus. If you become pregnant while taking Univasc, stop using it and call your doctor.
