Procardia is a blood pressure medication used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) or angina (chest pain).

Nifedipine is a calcium slow-channel blocker that manages cardiac muscle and vascular smooth muscle by preventing the movement of extracellular calcium ions into them. This inhibitory action helps improve blood flow by relaxing cardiac muscles and arteries so that Procardia can lower high blood pressure and relieve chest pain.

This antihypertensive medication is generally well-tolerated and effective at treating high blood pressure and chest pain. Procardia has also been found to offer vascular protection through anti-inflammatory effects while offering a low incidence of adverse reactions.

What should you avoid when taking Procardia?

Can I drink coffee while on nifedipine?

Drinking coffee shouldn’t decrease your body’s response to nifedipine when taking Procardia, but you may consider cutting back on coffee to make your blood pressure easier to manage during treatment. Nifedipine and caffeine have opposite effects on your system, but Procardia has shown to reverse coffee’s increase of your blood pressure levels.
