Blood Pressure Home > Dynacirc CR Drug Information

In clinical studies, Dynacirc CR® (isradipine CR) was shown to significantly lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Although it is not a cure, the drug can decrease the risk of developing health problems such as a stroke, heart disease, or congestive heart failure that occur with long-term hypertension. Dynacirc CR comes in the form of a tablet and is generally taken once a day. Because the tablets are controlled-release, they should be swallowed whole and not crushed, chewed, or broken.
 
Though generally well tolerated, this product is not suitable for everyone. Prior to beginning treatment with Dynacirc CR, inform your healthcare provider about any other medications you are taking, including supplements and nonprescription products. You should also be aware of possible side effects, such as dizziness, headaches, and fatigue.
