Sular Dosage

Most people start with a Sular dosage of 20 mg once daily (for the old formulation) or 17 mg once daily (for the new formulation). If needed, your doctor may increase your daily dose up to 60 mg. Elderly people or people with liver disease may need to start on a lower dose. Dosage guidelines must be followed as prescribed in order for the medication to work properly.

Sular Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Sular® (nisoldipine) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you may currently be taking.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your Sular dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 
The manufacturer of Sular changed the formulation of its tablets. While brand-name Sular is available only in the new formulation, generic versions of both the new and old formulations are available. It is easy to tell which formulation you have. The new formulation tablets come in 8.5-mg, 17-mg, 25.5-mg, and 34-mg strengths. The old formulation tablets come in 10-mg, 20-mg, 30-mg, and 40-mg strengths.
