    I started this med when I was pregnant with my 1st child at the age of 32. I was dianosed with Preeclampsia and then Toxamenia. Due to these conditions, I have had permanent HBP that I need to control with medication. I have not had any side effects on this medication and have been able to keep my BP under control with it and throughout all three of my pregnancies.

    Started on 60mg increased to 90 mg x2. Swelling in my ankles is horrible. I will start exercising more and discontinue med.

    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.
