Discussions that mention nifedipine

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Beth is right about the meds affecting our sleep, moods and many other things. I checked the adverse effects tables in one of my drug books. I list only the bp medications (a fraction of the drugs in the tables with these effects) that may change or damage the nerves in some way. Side effects can vary considerably from person to person.

significant headache: caffeine, clonidine, felodipine, labetalol, nifedipine, propranolol

peripheral neuropathy: losartan (ARB)

myasthenia gravis syndrome: beta blockers, antibiotics

confusion, delirium or disorientation: beta blockers (some), clonidine, diuretics, lisinopril, methyldopa, propranolol

paranoid thinking: propranolol

emotional depression: beta blockers (some), CCBs, clonidine, methyldopa, metoprolol, propranolol, thiazide diuretics. May start weeks or MONTHS later

visual hallucinations: propranolol


adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS): Hctz - will have to learn more about this!
