    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.
