Nifedipine Er 30mg To 60mg (Top voted first)

Melinda Says:

I have been taking Nifedipibe ER 30mg since March 2016. My doctor increased my dosage up to 60mg Nifedipine starting 10/20/2016. How long does it take my body to adjust to the higher dosage and should I expect any side effects?

Hello, Melinda! How are you?

Yes, side effects will typically occur any time your dosage is raised, and the FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.

It usually takes about 4 to 5 weeks for your body to adjust.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thank you Verwon, it seems that I'm experiencing a couple of the side effects, headache and increased urination, my BP readings are somewhat bouncing around, I'm really hoping they will stabilize very soon. Once again thank you for your reply I now know what to expect.
