What is Nifedipine?

Nifedipine is a drug that is used to reduce angina (chest pain) and treat excessive blood pressure. Nifedipine is a drug where calcium-channel blockers reduce blood pressure by relaxing blood arteries, allowing the heart to pump more efficiently. It alleviates chest discomfort by boosting the heart's oxygen and blood supply. Before starting it, notify your doctor if you have kidney or liver disease, a blockage in your digestive tract (stomach or intestines), a history of stomach surgery, coronary artery disease, an underactive thyroid, diabetes, or congestive heart failure. It is contraindicated in porphyria, myasthenia gravis, hardened liver and low blood pressure. Nifedipine is sold under the brand name Adalat and Procardia among others and is classified as Calcium channel blockers(dihydropyridine).

How does Nifedipine work?

In vascular smooth muscle and cardiac cells, this medicine inhibits voltage-gated L-type calcium channels. During depolarization, this obstruction inhibits calcium ions from entering cells, lowering peripheral artery vascular resistance and dilation of coronary arteries. Angina is relieved by lowering blood pressure and increasing oxygen supply to the heart. It comes with various brand names such as Procardia, Afeditab CR, Nifediac CC, Procardia XL, Adalat CC, Nifedical XL, Adalat. It is available as a capsule and as a long-acting (extended-release) tablet for oral use. Three or four times a day is the average dosage. The extended-release pill should be taken on an empty stomach once per day, either 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Take it at roughly the same time every day to help you remember to take it.
