1) What Adalat capsules are
Adalat capsules contain nifedipine, which belongs to a group of medicines
called calcium antagonists.
Adalat capsules are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest
pain) or a condition called Raynaud’s phenomenon which causes
discolouration (often whitening) of the fingers and toes.
For high blood pressure: Adalat capsules work by relaxing and expanding
the blood vessels. This makes the blood flow more easily and lowers blood
pressure. Lower blood pressure reduces the strain on your heart.
For angina: Adalat capsules work by relaxing and expanding the arteries
supplying the heart. This allows more blood and oxygen to reach the heart
and decreases the strain on it. Your angina attacks will be less severe and
less frequent if there is less strain on the heart.
Adalat capsules can increase the risk of serious heart problems in patients
with high blood pressure or angina. Because of this, Adalat capsules are
only used in these patients if no other treatments are appropriate.
For Raynaud’s phenomenon: Adalat capsules work by relaxing and
expanding the blood vessels in the fingers and toes. This helps ensure a
good blood supply.

2) Before you take Adalat capsules
Do not take Adalat capsules:
• If you have had a heart attack within the last month.
• If you get a sudden angina attack. Adalat capsules will not help relieve
symptoms of angina quickly.
• If you have unstable angina

similar medicines (known as dihydropyridines) or to any of the other
ingredients. The ingredients of Adalat capsules are listed in section 6.
• If you are taking rifampicin, an antibiotic.
• If you have been told that you have a narrowing of the aortic heart
valve (stenosis).
• If you have ever had a collapse caused by a heart problem
(cardiogenic shock), during which you became breathless, pale and had a
cold sweat and dry mouth.
• If your blood pressure continues to rise despite treatment (malignant
hypertension).
Ä Tell your doctor and do not take Adalat capsules if any of these
apply to you.
Your doctor will take special care:
• If you have low blood pressure Your blood pressure may be decreased
further by this treatment.
• If you have a heart condition where your heart cannot cope with
increased strain (poor cardiac reserve).
• If you are pregnant.
• If you are breastfeeding.
• If you are a diabetic. The treatment for your diabetes may need to be
adjusted. If you have any questions about this, ask your doctor.
• If you are on kidney dialysis. If you have a very high blood pressure
and a low blood volume, you might experience a sudden drop in blood
pressure when you take Adalat capsules.
• If your liver is not working properly. Your doctor may need to do some
blood tests. You may also be given a lower dose of Adalat capsules.

apply to you.

have liver problems.

low and your heartbeats to speed up or slow down. It may also lead to an
increase in your blood sugar level or an increase in the acidity of your
blood, swelling in the lungs, low blood oxygen levels and disturbances in
consciousness, possibly leading to unconsciousness.
