You should not use trandolapril if you are allergic to it, or if you:

  • have a history of angioedema;
  • recently took a heart medicine called sacubitril; or
  • are allergic to any other ACE inhibitor, such as benazepril, captopril, enalapril, fosinopril, lisinopril, moexipril, perindopril, quinapril, or ramipril.

Do not take trandolapril within 36 hours before or after taking medicine that contains sacubitril (such as Entresto).

If you have diabetes, do not use trandolapril together with any medication that contains aliskiren (a blood pressure medicine).

You may also need to avoid taking trandolapril with aliskiren if you have kidney disease.

Tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis);
  • liver disease;
  • heart disease or congestive heart failure;
  • diabetes; or
  • if you are on a low-salt diet.

Do not use if you are pregnant, and tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant. Trandolapril can cause injury or death to the unborn baby if you take the medicine during your second or third trimester.

You should not breastfeed while using this medicine.

Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose. Use the medicine exactly as directed.

Trandolapril can be taken with or without food.

Call your doctor if you are sick with vomiting or diarrhea, or if you are sweating more than usual. You can easily become dehydrated while taking trandolapril. This can lead to very low blood pressure, a serious electrolyte imbalance, or kidney failure.

Your blood pressure will need to be checked often. Your kidney function and electrolytes may also need to be checked.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using trandolapril.

If you have high blood pressure, keep using this medicine even if you feel well. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medicine for the rest of your life.
