 1  High blood pressure Headaches and extreme swelling in fingers and toes, legs, face. Muscle twitches and cramps. My high blood was related to an infection and immediately went down on its own after treatment of the infection. I don't know why I was prescribed this in the first place. Felt immediately better once I stopped taking it F 37 2 months

 1  Hypertension Worked okay, but wow, what side effects.... Endless headaches (mild to severe), heat exhaustion, upset stomachs, general moodiness and to top it all off -- the occasional muscle cramps from hell (I jumped out of bed in severe agony so many times just trying to relieve the intense pain). Ran into supplier problems and could not get Adalat, and was temporarily switched to another CCB drug- and now have nearly zero side effects (as compared to Adalat). I told my doctor all this, and my doctor was so surprised-- and so, we are staying the course with the alternate drug. No way I'm going back to Adalat ever. M 55 25 years

 1  not sure Severe headache. Dizziness. Frequent (and I am pregnant saying this) urination. Rapid heartrate. Shakes. Fatigue. Feel like head is under water when bending over. Blood pressure is normal everywhere else but OB office. Don't let anybody convince you to take meds for white coat syndrome. When I think about it the office is stressful. Find a calmer environment.

 2  high blood pressure It worked well for reducing my blood pressure. I started with 90 mg per day, went to 60, then later to 30, the lowest dose available. You can't cut it in half because it is slow-release. My blood pressure gradually went very low even with that. When I skipped it one day, I found I felt 100% better in energy. I felt like I had just stopped walking underwater. The doctor was ambivalent about it, so I took it off and on for a while. Finally I got a flushing reaction so I quit it altogether. After that my blood pressure stayed in a normal low range so I haven't needed any medicine for a few years. Why? I have no idea. Don't cut a slow-release pill or you will get a large dose all at once. M 76 8 years

 5  Rynauds disease Light headedness, tiredness, low blood pressure, warmth all around After taking the medication for approx. a week or 2 the light headeness and the fatique does go away. I was taking Adalat and Adalat XL to help control my Rhynaud Disease, I found that the XL dosage worked alot more evenly compared to the 5mg dose of Adalat that the symptoms came on quite quickly. I do have both meds. on hand though: The XL for daily use and if I am having a severe attack then the 5mg dose. The XL doseage just came on the market a few years back so I was taking the regualar Adalat since I was 11 years F 39 28 years

Her doctor knows of these side effects and yet he has let her continue on adalat.

ADALAT CC  (NIFEDIPINE):  This medication is used alone or in combination with other drugs to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Nifedipine belongs to a class of medications known as calcium channel blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
