Cardene SR Description

High blood pressure is an all too common diagnosis over these past several years. In the USA, there is about 1 in every 3 adults that are hypertensive and at risk for a heart attack, stroke, or kidney disease, especially the little more than half of these people that do not have their blood pressure under control. Try not to be one of these statistics and visit your doctor for a prescription for Cardene SR (sustained-release) and take control of your blood pressure (BP) by exercising, becoming more active, eating healthier, learning how to deal with stress better, and stop smoking.

How Cardene SR Works

Cardene SR contains Nicardipine, a selective class of calcium channel blocker drugs that will help you reduce your risk of heart or kidney disease. When taken as directed, Cardene SR will block calcium from moving into the smooth muscle cells that surround your arteries. As calcium is known to encourage muscle contractions that restrict a proper blood flow to your heart and tissues, Cardene SR will stop this action which results in the arterial muscles relaxing and allowing the arteries to carry sufficient blood so your heart is not working as hard and your blood pressure will decrease.

Conditions Treated by Cardene SR

If you are experiencing angina, a pain in your chest that usually occurs after exercising or other strenuous activities, Cardene SR will also help treat and prevent angina attacks. Although, this chest pain should alert you to the fact that your heart is working overtime to try and supply your organs and tissues with blood. Do not ignore the warnings or you may actually be experiencing a heart attack soon. Regular doctor visits, Cardene SR, and a positive change to your lifestyle can greatly reduce or prevent this from happening.

Before Cardene SR is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about risks of taking Cardene SR while you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, or are breast feeding. Make your doctor aware of any medical conditions or allergies you have and list other Rx or OTC drugs you currently take or use, including herbal and vitamin supplements. This will determine if Cardene SR is right for your situation.

Cardene SR Precautions

Never take Cardene SR with grapefruit or grapefruit juice as it could alter or interact with the effects of Nicardipine. You should not start, stop, or change the dosage of any of your meds without talking to your doctor first. Keep Cardene SR and other medications out of children’s reach and never share meds with anyone else. Cardene SR may cause you to feel dizzy so do not drive or perform any task that may be unsafe if you are not steady or alert.
