    Procardia XL

    What is Procardia XL Used For?

    Procardia XL (Nifedipine) is used in the treatment of high blood pressure and chest pain. It belongs to a group of drugs called calcium-channel blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels to make sure that the heart does not need to exert extra pressure when pumping blood. And in case of chest pains, it increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.

    How to Use Procardia XL?

    Procardia is an extended-release tablet, meant to be taken orally. The capsule version of it is typically taken three to four times a day. The extended-release tablet should be taken once a day on an empty stomach. One or two hours prior to, or after a meal would be the right time to take it. Try taking it at the same time everyday. Do not exceed the recommended dosage.

    The extended release tablets should not be split, chewed or crushed. They are meant to be swallowed as whole.

    If you take Procardia regularly, it may prevent chest pain. Do not stop taking this medicine without consulting your doctor first. However, it cannot stop chest pain once it has already started. In that case, your doctor may prescribe a different medication.
