QUINAPRIL is usually taken once or twice a day. You will start on a low dose which may be increased if necessary by your doctor until you are taking exactly the amount you need. For hypertension (high blood pressure) the starting dose is usually 10 mg, which may be increased to 20 to 40 mg and up to a maximum of 80 mg a day. For heart failure, or treatment with QUINAPRIL plus a diuretic, the starting dose is usually 2.5 mg, which may be increased up to 10 to 40 mg a day. Occasionally, some people need higher doses than this. Whatever dose you have been prescribed, follow your doctor's instructions exactly and never change the dose yourself. QUINAPRIL should only be taken by mouth. Try to take the tablets at the same time/s every day, either with or without food. If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember unless it is time for your next dose. Do not take two doses at the same time. If you accidentally take too much Quinapril, tell your doctor at once. If you can't do this, go to the nearest hospital accident and emergency department. Take along any tablets that are left, the container and the label so that the hospital staff can easily tell what medicine you have taken. QUINAPRIL should not be used in children under 12 years of age.
