Nifediac CC Drug Information

Healthcare providers often prescribe Nifediac CC® (nifedipine) for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. Because the tablets are extended release, the medication can be taken just once a day.
 
Although most people tolerate it well, Nifediac CC 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 it and being aware of possible side effects. In clinical studies, common side effects included:
 
  • Swelling or water retention in the hands, feet, or lower legs
  • Headaches
  • Flushing or hot flashes.
  •
