Nicardipine SR Information

Nicardipine SR (Cardene SR®) is a calcium channel blocker used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. This prescription medication comes in the form of a capsule that is usually taken twice a day. It works by relaxing the blood vessels. This action improves blood flow and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood.
 
To minimize potential risks with nicardipine SR, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other drugs you are taking (including nonprescription products), as well as up-to-date information on your medical history. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
