Procardia Drug Information
Procardia® (nifedipine) is a prescription drug approved to treat certain types of chest pain (angina). Specifically, it is licensed for stable angina and variant angina. Procardia helps the blood vessels to relax, which relieves pain and lessens the workload on the heart. The medication comes in the form of a capsule and is taken three or four times a day.
Although most people tolerate it well, Procardia is not right for everyone. Safety information on this drug should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. This includes knowing what products could interact with Procardia and being aware of possible side effects.
