Nifedipine XR 

Indication

Nifedipine belongs to the class of medications called calcium channel blockers. It is used to treat high blood pressure and Angina (chest pain brought on by exercise or stress). It works to control blood pressure and reduce the number of angina attacks by relaxing blood vessels. The immediate-acting form of nifedipine is also used to treat coronary spasm, the sudden constriction of the coronary artery in the heart.

Nifedipine Xr may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Nifedipine Xr may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Nifedipine Xr may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Nifedipine Xr for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Nifedipine Xr, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Nifedipine Xr without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Nifedipine Xr to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Nifedipine Xr if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Nifedipine XR 

Dosage

The usual starting dose for treatment of high blood pressure is 20 mg to 30 mg of a long-acting formula of nifedipine (extended release tablets, XL tablets, or PA tablets) once daily. For the treatment of angina, the usual starting dose is 30 mg. The maximum recommended daily dose is 90 mg.

For the extended-release tablets, or XL tablets, the recommended doses range from 20 mg to 90 mg once daily.

For the PA tablets, the recommended doses range from 10 mg to 40 mg twice daily.

For capsules (immediate-release form), the recommended doses range from 5 mg to 20 mg three or four times daily, to a maximum of 120 mg taken each day.

Nifedipine may be taken with or without food. The long-acting forms of the medication should be swallowed whole and should not be bitten, crushed, chewed or divided. Dosage is based on individual tolerance and response, and should be started at a low dose. Higher doses (e.g., 60 mg or 90 mg) are not recommended for initial treatment. Higher doses should be used for treatment once the dose has been stabilized.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Nifedipine Xr exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Nifedipine Xr at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Nifedipine Xr.

Diabetes: For people with diabetes, nifedipine may affect their control of blood sugar levels. If you have diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Nifedipine Xr may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nifedipine Xr, and whether any special monitoring is needed. It may be necessary to check your blood sugar regularly until you know how Nifedipine Xr affects your blood sugar control.

Fertility: Nifedipine Xr may affect male fertility. Talk to your doctor if this is important to you.

Grapefruit juice: Grapefruit juice can increase blood levels of nifedipine. Avoid drinking grapefruit juice or eating grapefruit before or while you are taking nifedipine.

Heart attack: Immediate-release nifedipine should not be used within one week after a heart attack.

Heart failure: Rarely, nifedipine causes severely decreased blood pressure, making symptoms of heart failure worse for people with severe heart failure. If you have heart failure, discuss with your doctor how Nifedipine Xr may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nifedipine Xr, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Nifedipine Xr to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Nifedipine Xr may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nifedipine Xr, and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Nifedipine Xr.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Low blood pressure: People prone to low blood pressure should monitor their blood pressure frequently while they are taking nifedipine. Blood pressure may occasionally drop more than expected when starting nifedipine. Be alert for any lightheadedness, dizziness, or a faster than normal heart rate. Move slowly when changing from a lying down to an upright position. If your blood pressure drops too low, your doctor will adjust your dose or try another medication.

Stomach disorders: People with certain stomach disorders (e.g., narrowing of the gastrointestinal tract) should talk with their doctor about the risks and benefits of taking Nifedipine Xr. If you have any stomach disorders, such as a narrowing of the gastrointestinal tract, discuss with your doctor how Nifedipine Xr may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Nifedipine Xr, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Surgery: If you are scheduled for surgery, inform your doctor that you are taking Nifedipine Xr.

Pregnancy: Nifedipine Xr should not be taken by women who are or may become pregnant, as nifedipine may cause harm to the developing baby if it is taken by the mother during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while taking Nifedipine Xr, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Nifedipine Xr passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking nifedipine, it may affect your baby. Women who are taking nifedipine are discouraged from breast-feeding. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Seniors: Seniors may be more sensitive to the side effects of nifedipine.
