Blood Pressure Home > Adalat LA

Were you looking for information about Adalat? Adalat LA is a common misspelling of Adalat.
Adalat CC® (nifedipine), a calcium channel blocker that is available by prescription, is commonly used to treat high blood pressure. The medication works by relaxing the blood vessels to help increase blood flow and make it easier for the heart to pump blood. Adalat CC is not suitable for everyone. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking the medication include heart disease, aortic stenosis, or any allergies you may have.
Adalat CC comes in the form of an extended-release tablet that is usually taken once a day. Although many people tolerate the medication well, there are possible side effects, such as dizziness, swelling, and headaches.
