About Adalat (Nifedipine)

Rating of sales:          


Also known as:  Nifedipine.

What Adalat is and what it is used for

Adalat (extended-release tablet) contains Nifedipine as the active component which belongs to a group of medicines called calcium antagonists.

For the treatment of high blood pressure, the medicine works by relaxing and expanding the blood vessels. This makes the blood flow more smoothly and lowers blood pressure. Lower blood pressure reduces the strain on your heart.

In the treatment of angina, Adalat relaxes and expands the arteries supplying the heart. This allows more blood and oxygen to reach the heart and decreases the strain on it. Your angina attacks will be less severe and less frequent if there is less strain on the heart.

How to take Adalat

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure.

To start with, your doctor will initiate the treatment with a low dosage strength to be able to monitor how you are responding so that the best long-term dose can be identified.

You can take Adalat either with or without food. Swallow whole with some water. Continue to take the tablets for as long as your doctor has told you to. Do not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit while taking the medicine.

If you take more Adalat than you should

Get medical help immediately. Taking too many tablets may cause your blood pressure to become too low, and your heartbeats to speed up or slow down. It may also lead to an increase in your blood sugar level or an increase in the acidity of your blood, swelling in the lungs, low blood oxygen levels and disturbances in consciousness, possibly leading to unconsciousness.

If you forget to take Adalat

Take your usual dose immediately and continue taking your tablets as prescribed, waiting 12 hours before taking your next dose. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
