Nifedipine Drug Interactions
If miconazole, warfarin, or certain other medications are taken with nifedipine, drug interactions can occur. These interactions can result in problems such as increased or decreased drug levels in the blood and increased risk of side effects (such as low blood pressure). To reduce your risk of nifedipine drug interactions, talk to your healthcare provider about the specific interactions that may apply to you.
