I have been taking Zanidip for 6 months and have aching muscles in my legs and muscle weakness. I can no longer go to the gym and am in intense pain after walking. I stopped for 10 days but the pain has not gone away. How long doe it take for the pain to subside?

Zanidip contains the active ingredient Lercanidipine, which is a calcium channel blocker, these are usually used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions.

Have you consulted your doctor?

If you have one of these medical conditions, it can be very dangerous to stop taking your medication and just let it get out of control. There are other medications on the market that you can try.

The symptoms you experienced are considered severe side effects and they can take several weeks to abate.

In addition, stopping this medication suddenly can cause rebound effects, which can cause elevated blood pressure and heart rate, which may put your in serious danger.

I have just learnt that the swollen feet and ankles, severe cramping and muscle pains in my legs and now much lowered blood pressure are the side effects of taking Zanidip. I also found it very painful to go up stairs, and to go walking. I was on 20mg per day, my GP now says to reduce it to 10mg. But can I stop this completely? I am also on Noten for the hypertension.
