Discussions that mention nifedipine

High & Low Blood Pressure board

The side effects lasted after I finished the medication. After stopping nifedipine the swelling in my ankles continued to get get worse and it was at least 3 weeks before they were back to normal. The constipation lasted a few months and it is only now, about 10 weeks after stopping the tablets that I am starting to sleep as I used to before medication. The doctor would say that it was because of my age as she doesn't believe in side effects!
