Nifedipine - Flushing, Fatigue

I take Nifedipine 60 mg each morning. Previously I was on 30 mg twice a day. I feel warmth and notice redness in my lower legs and face about an hour after taking my medication. I also seem very tired about an hour after taking it. Is this common? Does it ever go away? Thank you! ## Yes, those issues can both be side effects of Nifedipine, according to FDA reports, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, heartburn, and headache. Ref: Medline Plus Nifedipine How long have you been taking it? Side effects typically hit their peak about 4 to 6 weeks in, as your body gets used to the medication, and it reaches its full level of efficacy in your body, then they begin to taper off, and eventually disappear. However, if these are severe, you may need to try a different medication, or need a...

nifedipine and dreams

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. ## I've been taking nifedi...

Nifedipine and water retention

I have been taking Nifedipine for a month. I have increased water and swelling in feet, and a lot of pulled muscles. I think the pills are the cause. How do I wean myself off them? I take one every second day, until I see my Dr. ## It would be best not to stop taking them, until you see your doctor, but the NIH does list that as being a possible side effect of this medication, so you might need to switch to a different medication. When you be able to see your doctor? The FDA lists other side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination.

Nifedipine bloop pressure pills

My Nifedipine blood pressure pills got wet. Are they still good to use? ## If it was just water, they wouldn't become toxic, or anything, but if they partially dissolved they may not be as effective. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Overall, it would be best to check with your pharmacist, you may need to pick up a refill sooner than usual. Are you on any other medications? ## I'm taking nifedipine to control my blood pressure and want to know if it is a blood thinner?

Nifedipine ER - double dosed 90 mg

My mom takes a lot of pills and a typo from me caused her to take two 90 mg ER Nifedipine tablets. I am TERRIFIED that I have just hurt or worsened my mom. What will happen? Should I take her to the ER? Should I call the ambulance. Nothing has happened yet, but I am so scared. Her blood pressure before was 186 over 104, pulse 95. PLEASE HELP, I AM FREAKING OUT! ## Hello, Rhonda! How is your mom doing? Did she experience any adverse effects? Generally doubling up once doesn't cause any serious issues, other than possibly more severe side effects, according to the FDA. So she may experience more nausea, dizziness, headache, and urination than normal. It could also cause her blood pressure to be lower than usual. Is she on any other medications?

Adalat GITS 20

Hello, i've just started taking Adalat GITS 20mg for my high blood pressure. I still feel dizzy at times and my blood pressure is 130/90 still (it was extremely high last week and was also dizzy).

It may take 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body to see how well it will work for you.

Side effects of a double dose of Nifedipine

Last night I might have taken Nifedipine er 30mg two times 8:30 and at 10:30. I had no side effects except for my pulse increasing from 73 to 93 within an hour of the second pill. It is now 6:23 a.m. I am fine but a little hesitant about whether to take my metoprolol succinate er 25 mg at 10:30 this morning. And do I resume the regular dose of Nifedipine tonight at about 9 pm? ## Did you experience any other symptoms? The FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and hypotension. And yes, generally you should just continue with your normal dosing schedule, unless your doctor directs otherwise. Are these the only medications you are currently taking?

incomplete dissolve and absorbtion of medication

I started Nifedipine XR 30 mg last Friday, June 10,2016. I realize the tablet shells do not dissolve but I think the entire pill with the undissolved and unabsorbed medication is passing through my system. My blood pressure has not gone down since I started it 6 days ago. I happened to swallow a dental crown the same day I started the medication and have, unfortunately, been trying to retrieve my $900 crown so that I will not have to buy another. In this effort I have found 4 pills, each time thinking it was my crown, and upon inspection found the yellow medicine still inside each pill. My doc says I have absorbed the medicine but told me to double the dosage to 60 mg/day and was insulted when I mentioned the pharmacist told me to ask for a different medication. I have before and after ...

what is nifedipine used for

can i use both metoprolol and nifedipine at the same time? ## As long as they have both been prescribed for you. Several medications are often prescribed to help bring someone's blood pressure down as fast, and safely as possibly.

nifedipine and ascard during pregnancy

I am pregnant (33 weeks) and I don't know if it's ok to use both nifelat 20mg and ascard 75mg to control my blood pressure? ## You should take whatever medications your doctor has instructed you to take, it would be far more dangerous for both and your baby, if your blood pressure was out of control. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Congratulations on the baby!!! Are these the only medications you are taking?

does nifedipine cause breast cancer

I read nifedipine causes breast cancer. Is it true? It's supposed to be taken twice daily for high blood pressure. ## Hello, Mercedes! How are you? Are you post-menopausal? That is when the greatest risk was found, though more research is needed to be sure of that and it seemed only relevant to calcium channel blockers, according to JAMA and the studies they have already compiled. Thus, if you are concerned, you could always speak to your doctor about trying a medication that is in a different class, such as a beta blocker. Is this the only medication you are taking?

White Round Pill With M On One Side And N E 30 The Other

I'm trying to see if my prescription has been filled correctly. This pill is white, round, the number 30 and N E on one side, the letter M on the other. This was refilled for a prescription I've been taking for years called NIFEdipine (also known as Adalat) only I have never had this pill, it's normally a round pinkish pill. ## Ashlyee, it is normal for your pharmacy to switch the tablets they provide you with, depending on what manufacturer was offering the cheapest prices at the time they had to restock their supply. This is how they keep the generic prices as low as possible for customers without insurance. That said, yes, the tablet you received does contain 30mgs of Nifedipine, so you have received the correct medication. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I...

Nifedipine ER 30mg to 60mg

I have been taking Nifedipibe ER 30mg since March 2016. My doctor increased my dosage up to 60mg Nifedipine starting 10/20/2016.

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.

Long term use of adalat

I have been taking adalat for 21 years now. In the last 3 years I have lived a healthier lifestyle. My BP has been great. So my doctor said I could ween myself off of medicine. What type of withdrawal symptoms can I expect to have? ## Hello, Jan! How are you doing? The FDA lists the typical ones as possibly including nausea, headache, elevated heart rate and elevated blood pressure. That's why you need to be very careful to wean off slowly, because it will help prevent your heart rate and blood pressure from hitting dangerous levels. Is there anything else I can help with?
