Discussions that mention nifedipine

High & Low Blood Pressure board

When I was on lisinopril I managed to get to sleep without trouble but kept on waking up in the night-up to 5 times. it got progressively harder to get back to sleep. As I could n't see my own doctor to change medication the duty doctor gave me sleeping pills to tide me over Christmas when there were up to 10 of us staying in this house. I was put on nifedipine but the sleeping problems continued. I then found I had a normal BP except at the doctor's so came off medication. However it took me more than 3 months to get back to sleeping properly and get rid of the chronic constipation. I am now fine with a bp of 105/78 this morning.Just stopping the medication did not bring my system back to normal.

Good luck to you all
