Important Instructions on Taking Nisoldipine

General Nisoldipine Dosage Information

Some considerations for people taking nisoldipine include:
 
  • Nisoldipine comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth, usually once a day.
     
  • Nisoldipine should be taken on an empty stomach or with a low-fat meal or snack. Taking the medication with a high-fat meal can increase the level of nisoldipine in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects.
     
  • Because nisoldipine tablets are extended release, they should not be broken, crushed, or chewed. Be sure to swallow the tablets whole.
     
  • Nisoldipine should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the drug in your blood.
     
  • For the drug to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Nisoldipine will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to nisoldipine or your nisoldipine dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
