Procardia XL GITS pill
5 Replies RSS
I have taken Procardia XL GITS pill for 21 years. When I went on Medicare, they told me they didn't make them anymore. I am on a generic Adalat 60 mg now and have been very aware of my heartbeat ever since November 2012. I tried calling Pfizer and Mylan. They gave me no help. Does anyone know if these pills are still on the market? The pill I was taking is a round pill, medicine embedded in plastic shell with a laser-drilled hole in the center. Please help me if anyone knows where I can get them. ## Based on my research, there haven't been any verifiable claims or FDA announcements regarding the discontinuation of Procardia. So I do wonder if what they told you was even true. Often times Medicare only accepts/covers certain brands or generics, and it may just be that they don...

nifedipine and dreams.
1 Reply RSS
I am taking 60mg of nifedipine and I am having unpleasant dreams every night.Is there an alternative which does not have this side effect? ## Hello, Mick! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're experiencing. That is possible with most medications. How long have you been taking it? Most side effects tend to go away, once your body gets used to a medication, which generally takes about 4 to 5 weeks. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. There are other medications available, so if it's still happening and it's been longer than 5 weeks, it will most likely just be a matter of trial and error to find one that doesn't cause you such an issue.

Started taking this medication 5 days ago for blockage in upper thigh, now have extreme pain in my foot how long will this painl last now that the blood is getting to my foot.

That could be a sign of the tissue becoming necrotic and without prompt medical treatment, you may lose those digits.

I have been taking 10mg twice daily for 25 years. My new G.P. has now raised it to 30 mg.once daily after only two high b.p readings. I started with 30 yesterday morning and have felt unwell all day. Also awful headache that I cannot get rid of. I am concerned how long is this going to continue as I have several other health problems. Thanking you. ## Hello, Jane! How are you? All medications carry the risk of causing side effects and it would be normal to experience them again, when the dosage is raised.

It may take 4 to 5 weeks, for the side effects to taper off and go away. If they do not, then you...

can neurobion help with chilblains
1 Reply RSS
i went to the clinic and was given neurobion and vitamin b6 for chilblains do they help with chilblains? ## Hello, Nachizo! How are you? No, neither of these have been known to help. The generally advisory for treatment is to keep the affect areas warm, avoid any extreme temperature changes, keep them dry, use a topical steroid cream to relieve itching, vitamin D and calcium supplements have been said to help some people. As to medications, a vasodilator, such as Nifedipine or Diltiazem can help. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, increased urination and hypotension. Were you seen by a doctor, or just a nurse?
