Blood Pressure Home > Sular for High Blood Pressure
Sular® (nisoldipine) is a prescription drug approved to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It comes in the form of extended-release tablets, which means they release the medication slowly and evenly over time. Most people only need to take Sular once a day.
As a calcium channel blocker, Sular slows down the rate at which calcium moves into your heart and into the blood vessel walls. This effect helps decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Sular is designed to be taken on an empty stomach or with a low-fat meal or snack. Taking it with a high-fat meal can increase the level of medication in your blood, increasing your risk of side effects.
