I've taken 2 other prescriptions prior to this one and so far this one does not give me any side affects so Im happy with that. Im just a little concerned at this time because I just found out I am pregnant now and don't know about the side affects on the baby.

This drug scared me silly when i took it. I began having moods swings and anxiety attacks, not to mention the throbbing headaches and disorientation. But my doctor changed my subscription now so i feel much better, though I still wonder if there was any serious damage done to me by it's use.

Initial reduction in Blood Pressure but did not bring it under control even with atenolol as a companion drug. Within 4 months the effect of Nefidipine was totally lost.
