Plendil Medication Information
Available by prescription only, Plendil® (felodipine) is a drug licensed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It comes in tablet form and is approved for adults only, as it has not been adequately studied in children. The medication is usually taken once a day. Some of the most commonly reported side effects include headaches, flushing, and swelling of the lower legs, feet, or hands; however, most people are able to take it without any problems.
To minimize potential risks with Plendil, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other medications you are taking (including nonprescription products), as well as up-to-date information on your medical history. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
