Question Anemia and Nifedipine XL 30 mg

I have been taking Nifedipine XL 30 mg one tablet per day for over 6 years. Could I have a rare reaction to taking nifedipine??????
My blood test results have been low for some time now.
RBC 3.39 , Hct 32.6 , Hgb 32.6 , WBC 3.9 - PLT 121.
I wonder if my taking nifedipine is causing my low blood count.

Re: Anemia and Nifedipine XL 30 mg

This is not a question we can answer for you since we offer no medical advice.

Your question can be asked of your doctor, or a second opinion doctor -- or even of your pharmacist.

You can do some research on the side effects of nifedipine by checking out Make sure you research anything else you are taking, too -- including herbs, vitamins and other minerals you take, just in case they create problems in combination. But, then take your findings to your health care provider. Any findings will be good springboards for discussion.

good luck!
