I would suggest doing so, without their doctor's approval.

Nifedipine is a calcium channel blocker, which is most commonly used to help treat angina and replacing the time released medication with an immediate release could result in their getting too much of the medication at once, which could cause an overdose.

Are there any other questions or comments?
