For High Blood Pressure: “Started taking Nifedipine 30mg once a day for high blood pressure for about two weeks with no side effects. Controlled my blood pressure well but day before yesterday I began to have chest pains that sent me to the ER last night and determined to be muscular. Now tonight they are off and on and are so strong I may go back. On the recommendation from the ER doctor, I did not take my dose last night and my symptoms have not improved. Tonight my chest pains are much worse. Hoping to talk to my doctor about a suitable alternative Monday.”

For High Blood Pressure: “nifedipine Er (XI) 30 mgDoes great job controlling blood pressure, but the side effects are getting too much to bear. Memory loss, muscle cramps/stiffness, dry mouth and lips and tingling around lips, dry throat, increased urination, severe itching (head, hands, forearms, face), shakiness, upper (r) abdominal pain, vision changes, drastic hair loss, trouble sleeping. Put shod foot on floor and couldn’t tell if it was on floor or not.”

For Raynaud’s Syndrome: “I suffer from acute Raynaud’s, in that I suffer it 24/7 even if in the warm my feet especially can turn into ”blocks of ice” and I have painful stiffness of the hands and feet and a painful tingling rotating from one to the other all the time – if I get cold it is much worse. I was initially put on Nifedipine 5 mg three times a day which help with the worst symptoms for two months but the body adapted and it no longer helped as much. After tests my GP raised the dosage to 10 mg 3 times a day which has helped the Raynaud’s somewhat but I cannot cope with the side effects of dizziness, sternum pain and extreme exhaustion so will have to revert to the lesser dosage of 5 mg which doesn’t help me really. I am most disappointed and frustrated and wonder if there is any other help out there ?”

For High Blood Pressure: “The pills dont even dissolve in my system. There is a hard plastic like substance on them under the coating. I just poop them out. Waste of money. “
