I've been on this medication for about a week and a half. And so far im suffering from mood swings, slow heart beat and shortness of breath.

after having preeclampsea, my BP's were still elevated and am on beta blocker therapy. I still have high BP's and Im only in my 30's. When I get bp readings over 170's/100's I call my doctor "1st and formost" to advise of the situation and take my procardia with drops of about 20 points S/D within about 20 mins. As instructed, may increase with an additional dose of 30mg if still over 150/100. S/E include headache, and gerneralized fatigue ( like I'm zoning out.) Hypotension occures for about 20min with the increased dose very infrequently. I will usualy have a small sip or two of chicken broth for a small dose of sodium if that occurs. All in all, for the 2 to 3 times a year this happens Niphedipine (Procardia) has worked for me and I am very happy this medication is avalible for use.

This treatment has worked fairly well

This medication gave me several side effects, vomiting, dizziness, cramping of muscles, and very frequent long urination. Also, I am nursing and my baby was very fussy the whole day. I stopped taken it in one day after talking to my physician.
