    I've been on BP meds since 2005 none of them have brought my BP down. Was out of town my BP was a steady 170/100. Went to a dr. out of town and he prescribe me nifedipine.

    I like it. I previously took amlodipine (10 years), I switched to nifedipine after my gums swelled and my legs swelled too. I take it once a day and really like it. I take it for pulmonary hypertension.
