No, taking nifedipine shouldn't make your bones brittle.
Actually, nifedipine is in a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. It relaxes (widens) your blood vessels (veins and arteries), which makes it easier for the heart to pump and reduces its workload.
Nifedipine is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and to treat angina (chest pain). As far as I know, nifedipine does not interfere with calcium absorption.
