Afeditab Side Effects: An IntroductionAs with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Afeditab CR® (nifedipine). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. When side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Afeditab CR. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Afeditab CR side effects with you.)
