What can you tell me about nifedipine? I have had hypertension for years now and have taking three different drugs. Some gave me side effects, and others did not really bring my blood pressure down. Now my GP has been talking about nifedipine. What are the side effects of that? I heard nifedipine is not suitable for everyone.

Yes, that is because nifedipine is a calcium channel blocker that is not used primarily for high blood pressure. Some high blood pressure patients do really well on this type of medication, but not everyone is like that. The good thing about nifedipine is that it has very few reported side effects, so I think it is worth a try!
