Specific Dynacirc Warnings and Precautions
Warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Dynacirc include the following:
- The medication should be used with caution in people with congestive heart failure (CHF). Calcium channel blockers (such as Dynacirc) can cause fluid retention (edema) and can decrease the heart's ability to pump blood, which can be especially dangerous in people with CHF.
- Dynacirc can cause low blood pressure (hypotension). Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have any symptoms of low blood pressure, such as lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting.
- Dynacirc can interact with a number of medicines (see Dynacirc Drug Interactions).
- Dynacirc is considered a pregnancy Category C medication. This means that it may not be safe to use during pregnancy. Talk to your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of using the drug when pregnant (see Dynacirc and Pregnancy).
- It is not known if Dynacirc passes through breast milk. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding or plan to start, discuss this with your healthcare provider prior to using the drug (see Dynacirc and Breastfeeding).
