Each calcium channel blocker has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and then compared to the side effects of another group not taking the medicine. As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.

In these studies, the most common side effects of calcium channel blockers included:Abdominal pain (stomach pain), Constipation, Drowsiness, Fatigue, Feelings of a rapidly or forcefully beating heart (palpitations), Flushing or hot flashes, Headaches, Nausea, A sore throat, Swelling or water retention in the hands, feet, or lower legs.

There are a number of less common, but more serious side effects that you should report to the doc/pharmacist.These include, but are not limited to: Chest pain, Heart attack, Signs of very low blood pressure, such as dizziness or lightheadedness, especially when accompanied by fainting, Severe swelling, water retention, or difficulty breathing, which may be signs of heart failure, Depression, Paranoia, Breast enlargement in men (gynecomastia), Temporary blindness, Signs of an allergic reaction, including an unexplained rash, hives, itching, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing or swallowing.

ED has not been documented, but would recommend that you do seek medical advice from the doc/pharmacist who prescribed AZOR.

Take care, best wishes!
