What is Adalat (nifedipine)?

Adalat (nifedipine) is in a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers and works by relaxing (widening) your blood vessels to make it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. This reduces is workload.

Adalat is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and angina (chest pain).

Important Information

You should not use Adalat if you are allergic to nifedipine, the active ingredient in Adalat.

Before taking Adalat, tell your doctor if you have any of the following pre-conditions: kidney or liver disease (especially cirrhosis), coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, or digestive problems.

If you are preparing for surgery, tell the surgeon that you are currently utilizing Adalat. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time before surgery can be performed.

Many drugs can interact with Adalat. Tell your doctor about all other medications you use.

Do not stop taking Adalat without first talking to your doctor, even if you feel fine. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.

Special note: high blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life. Consult with your physician about a comprehensive management program for your high blood pressure which may include medicine, weight loss,exercise, and dietary changes.

What should I know before taking Adalat?

Below are guidelines you should follow when taking Adalat:

Take Adalat exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Hypertension and other high-blood pressure related illnesses are not the same in everyone. Your doctor may need to occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results.

Take the Adalat medicine on an empty stomach. Do not crush, chew, or break an extended-release tablet as breaking the pill may cause too much of the drug to be released at one time. You should swallow it whole.

Call your doctor if you have ongoing vomiting or diarrhea, or if you are sweating more than usual. These conditions can lead to severely low blood pressure.

Your blood pressure will need to be checked often and you may need other blood tests at your doctor's office. Visit your doctor regularly.

Store Adalat at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

What’s in Adalat?

The primary ingredient in Adalatis the calcium channel blocker nifedipine

 

How does Adalat work?

Adalat CC is part of a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. This group of drugs helps to slow down the calcium-absorption rate in the heart and the walls of blood vessels. The reduction in absorption rates helps, in turn, to relax the blood vessels, thereby allowing better blood flow and making it easier for the heart to pump blood.

 

There are two basic types of calcium channel blockers—dihydropyridine and non-dihydropyridine. The most important difference between the two types is that non-dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers can slow down the heart rate, while dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers do not. Adalat is a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, which means that it does not usually decrease the heart rate.

Are there any drugs I can’t take in combination with Adalat?

You should discuss any drugs you are currently taking with your doctor before beginning a treatment with Adalat. Some drugs include digoxin (Lanoxin), acarbose (Precose), nefazodone, HIV/AIDS medicine such as atazanavir (Reyataz), delavirdine (Rescriptor), fosamprenavir (Lexiva), indinavir (Crixivan), nelfinavir (Viracept), or ritonavir (Norvir, Kaletra, or saquinavir (Invirase), cimetidine (Tagamet), fentanyl (Actiq, Duragesic, Fentora) or other narcotic pain medications, antifungal medication such as fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox), or ketoconazole (Nizoral), a heart rhythm medication such as quinidine (Quin-G) or flecaininde (Tambocor), St. John's wort, rifabutin (Mycobutin), rifampin (Rifadin, Rifater, Rifamate) or rifapentine (Priftin), a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin), an antibiotic such as clarithromycin (Biaxin), dalfopristin/quinupristin (Synercid), or erythromycin (E.E.S., EryPed, Ery-Tab, Erythrocin), a beta-blocker such as atenolol (Tenormin, Tenoretic), carvedilol (Coreg), labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol), nadolol (Corgard), propranolol (Inderal, InnoPran), sotalol (Betapace), timolol (Blocadren), and others, medicines used to prevent organ transplant rejection, such as sirolimus (Rapamune) or tacrolimus (Prograf), other heart or blood pressure medications such as benazepril (Lotensin), diltiazem (Cartia, Cardizem), doxazosin (Cardura), or verapamil (Calan, Covera, Isoptin, Verelan), or seizure medication such as carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol), phenobarbital (Solfoton), or phenytoin (Dilantin).

Can Adalat cause an allergic reactions? If so, what are the signs?

You should seek immediate, emergency medical help if you experience any of the following allergic reactions including hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat.

What happens if I miss a dose of Adalat?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up any missed doses.

Adalat CC is part of a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. This group of drugs helps to slow down the calcium-absorption rate in the heart and the walls of blood vessels. The reduction in absorption rates helps, in turn, to relax the blood vessels, thereby allowing better blood flow and making it easier for the heart to pump blood.

“The worry of being hypertensive is enough to make it worse! I mean having to make so many changes to my diet, my way of life, my stress…I didn’t think I’d be able to cope. So when my doctor recommended Adalat in addition to my lifestyle changes, I breathed a sigh of relief. And so did my blood pressure.”

 

“Although I had made lots of changes in my life since being diagnosed with hypertension, I didn't see the kind of results I wanted to. My blood pressure was still way too high to make me comfortable. It made me feel like I was failing to keep my condition under control. Then my doctor recommended Adalat. Now I can confidently say that my hypertension is under control.”

 

“I was always one of those guys that said I’d never take mediciation the rest of my life. Then I was diagnosed with hypertension. And even though I did everything the doctor said, I couldn’t really get it under control. Well with four kids, you start to worry about the day when it gets so out of control that you end up having a heart attack. That’s when I talked with my doctor about Adalat. All I can say is the inconvenience of taking a daily medication is far outweighed by the time I get to spend with my kids.”

 

“Young and hypertensive. I never would have thought that would be me. But at 28 my doctor gave me the bad news. Even though I lived and active lifestyle and ate well, he told me it can happen to anyone. And the problem is that hypertension leads to greater risks of heart disease and heart attacks. Adalat gives me the peace of mind that I am doing everything I can everyday to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

 

“Without Adalat, I know that I wouldn’t be here today. My hypertension had reached a critical point. But with all my work travel and stress, I never seemed to have time to manage it. Then I had a mild heart attack. It didn’t take me long after that to realize I needed to start paying attention. My doctor recommended Adalat. Since then I feel better and my blood pressure has consistently stayed down in the healthy levels. Thanks doc…and thanks Adalat.”
