Afeditab CR Drug Information
Healthcare providers typically prescribe Afeditab CR® (nifedipine) for the treatment of hypertension, known more commonly as high blood pressure. The medicine works by causing the blood vessels to relax, which improves blood flow and eases the workload of the heart.
This drug comes in tablet form and is typically taken just once a day. Because the tablets are extended release, do not cut, chew, break, or crush them; they should be swallowed whole. Prior to beginning treatment with Afeditab CR, review the safety information for this medication with your healthcare provider. This includes side effects to be aware of -- in particular, potentially serious ones that may require prompt medical care.
