Advice regarding usage of Nikoran 5

My father, 59 years of age ..diabetic n has high bp too, recently had a leg fracture n afterwards developed some heaviness in his left hand..All the relevant tests done like eco, ECG, n other blood tests were all normal too. Still the doctor suggested to he take Nikoran 5 twice a day.. I'm confused as to whether it's safe to use it or not as my father has no heart problem as such..please reply. ## It is always best to follow the doctor's instructions about taking a medication. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and low blood pressure. What other medications is he taking?
