    I went to see my Dentist about my gums starting to grow over my teeth. She asked me was I taking Procardia. I shockingly said yes. This is one of the side effects that I have experience along with frequent urination.

    Since starting this med, I have been extremely tired in the mornings until 2:00pm. Muscle and joint pain, my feet are on fire, constipation has gotten worse. Side effects are terrible. 60mgs x 1x per day. Going to lessen the mgs and see if that helps. If not we try another one.

    Have been taking Procardia XL 90 mg for nearly 5 years for HBP and has been very effective but the side effects have been getting progressively worse.

Dr lowered my dose just the other day. Hope it helps.

    I started taking this 3 weeks ago for HBP. I was on HCTZ for 1 week w/o good results. Now I take this, too. On HCTZ, I felt great, no swelling in lower extremities, no SOB, no palpitations. I dropped 8 lbs of bloat the first week. Unfortunately my BP didn't respond as would have liked. So I was put on this in addition. I feel like crap. I'm tired. I now have "kankles" even with l ...

    Been taking for over 3 months; noticed I've been dizzy 10-12 hours later, ever since. Was told I have vertigo, but not thoroughly convinced == too coincidental with timing of Procardia XL. Anyone else get this dizziness?
