I know I already made a post about this but I have been taking nifedipine or procardia for a couple of days to stop my contractions, I have been really sleepy and a bit dizzy. Did any of you ladies take this? And if so what side effects did it cause?

  • My best friend is on Nifedipine right now to slow her contractions and it makes her feel horrible! She doesn't want to take it because she feels so "out of it" when she does. I am so sorry that there is someone else feeling this way with this medicine. I spend a lot of time with her and I see what she is going through. She would much rather go through the pain then feel like a vegetable. Goodl luck, I hope that they ease up on you and you don't have to take it anymore.
