 1  Blood pressure Extreme migraines. Nausea ,fever,unable to drive or focus eyes more than 15 minutes, dizzy,fatigue,depression,facial numbness.Increased BP most likely due to so much pain. F 41 6 days
 2  Chf Persistent cough worse at night Sinus drainage Upper respiratory mucous Ticklish throat F 68 3 weeks
 3  High blood pressure Mild fatigue, headaches at exactly 3:00 pm each day (I take the drug @ 9:00 am), increased mucus in the throat, especially at night when lying down or trying to sleep. This is very bothersome as it causes tickling and makes it hard to fall asleep. This is probably the most bothersome side effect. It will wake me up and I feel like I have a golf size ball of mucus in my throat. It has also caused my stools to be much looser than normal. The drug did control my HBP bringing it to the 120/80 range. F 49 3 months

 2  high blood pressure From the first day, I was so dizzy and nauseous that I had to lie in bed until it passed 4 hours later. It did not get better after one week, so I stopped. It did not lower by blood pressure in this time. F 52 6 days
1 mg 1X D
 4  Blood Pressure I have had the coughing but not enough to stop. I feel a little inconvenience is worth it. I also take Athenol for BP No one has every heard of MAVIK when talking with others. This must be an old, old medication. I will continue to take as long as they suggest. F 60 18 years

 3  High blood pressure None Started on 1mg, increased to 2mg three months later, have been on 2mg/day for over a year now. Began taking it the same month as I took my first cholesterol-lowering pills and hypothyroid medication: mildly increased libido and increased general activity level three months later were likely due to thyroid meds, not Mavik. Average daily BP lowered from 170/115 to 145/90. I self-medicated and increased doseage to 4mg for two weeks but it didn't bring the numbers down any further. Yesterday, doctor prescribed a water pill in hopes of increasing Mavik's effectiveness. F 45 1.5 years

 3  high blood pressure Constant running nose, sinus drainage, fatigue and dizziness. It has lowered my blood pressure, am presently on 8mg per day M 57 3 months
 3  hypertension drowsiness, dizziness and some fatigue I started on ,5 mg per day then after two months, increased to 1,0mg per day. Initial BP was 170/110. Mavik was relatively effective, but pressure remains high (150/95). M 46 3 months
 4  high blood pressure an annoying dry cough; ticklish throat it did lower my blood pressure F 59 10 months
 1  High Blood Pressure Severe fever, flu-like symptoms, blackouts, extreme vertigo so I couldn't stand up. Not for me. It must work for some people or I presume they wouldn't sell it. M 45 3 days
 3  Hypertension Started Mavik at 1 mg for 2 weeks, developed a dry cough, heart pounding and drowsiness. However it did bring down my bp and stopped protein spill in urine. Am going to discontinue to try Atacand. Altace gave me the same problems. F 52 2 weeks
 3  High Blood Pressure Causes constant constipation which is somewhat alieviated by fiber suppliments. My Blood pressure has been reduced. F 60 3 months
 2  High blood pressure The cough drives me nuts. Absolutely no sex drive and I'm tired all the time It seems to be keeping my blood pressure at 140/85, which still isn't good enough. I'm going to talk to my doctor about switching drugs. I've been on mavik 2 mg for 10 months since I had a cecerian section and lost a lot of blood. F 26 10 months
 2  HBP & kidney protection (diabetes) 1 and 1/2 months after starting Mavik (2 mg./day), I developed a dry (nonproductive) cough that is particularly irksome at night. This is coupled with an always runny that doesnít respond to any allergy medication. Now at 5 months on Mavik and these symptoms are worse. Mavik is completely effective at controlling my HPB at 2 mg./day. None of the terrible side effects I experienced on the Beta-blocker Metoprolol (fatigue, lethargy, depression, weight gain). I have sleep apnea however, and it's tough enough already to get a good night's sleep without coughing all night. If you don't have the runny nose and cough, or it's tolerable, Mavik works well. I'm on to an ARB next to see if that works for me - Benicar (olmesartan). M 44 5 months

 3  hypertension Persistent cough worse at night, upper respiratory mucous and tickling, increased loss of libido, increased fatigue. Not sure how much is attributable to Mavik, but doctor switched me to Avapro after seven months because of complaints about upper chest and persistent coughing and fatigue. Mavik appeared to control my BP by end of day, but morning BP readings were still higher. Probably because I was started on minimum dosage, but after seven months did not want to increase on this drug because of cough that would not go away, plus occasional acute fatigue & drowsiness. M 56 7 months
 2  high blood pressure lowered sperm count didn't seem to lower blood pressure as well as other meds. Doctor suspected it lowered my sperm count M 5 months
 2  Hypertension At 2mg no side effects, but when I needed to increase the dose to 4mg, my libido dropped to zero. My doctor didn't tell me this could happen. I don't think doctors think this is important to women. I also take Maxzide to control my blood pressure. The combination of an ACE inhibitor and diuretic work, but I don't consider Mavik a good choice for me. F 57 2 years

MAVIK  (TRANDOLAPRIL):  Trandolapril is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication is also used to treat heart failure and to improve survival after a heart attack. Trandolapril belongs to a class of drugs known as ACE inhibitors. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
