Lercanidipine

Lercanidipine is a medicine that treats adult patients with high blood pressure. To prevent your blood pressure from causing potential health problems such as heart issues, this treatment works to reduce the amount of calcium which enters certain cells in the heart and blood vessels. The adjustments this medication makes are designed to improve blood flow and put less strain on the arteries and heart, which causes blood pressure to naturally drop.

What is Lercanidipine?

Lercanidipine tablets are a medication used to treat high blood pressure. The treatment is taken on a daily basis when prescribed to you and the adjustments it makes to blood pressure reduces the risk of the user facing serious health problems in the long-term, such as a stroke or heart attack. This medicine is suitable only for adults (aged 18 or above).

How does Lercanidipine work?

Lercanidipine is part of a group of medicines called calcium blockers. The treatment blocks the entry of calcium into the muscle cells of the heart as well as the blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. This is done because the heart contracts and arteries narrow when calcium enters these cells and vessels. By blocking the entry of calcium in these areas, heart contractions decrease and the arteries are dilated or widened and this reduces blood pressure.

How do I take Lercanidipine?

The recommended starting dose is typically one 10mg tablet a day. This tablet will preferably be taken in the morning, at least 15 minutes before breakfast, because a high fat meal significantly increases blood levels of the drug. Your doctor may change your dosage to one 20mg tablet a day later on. Tablets are preferably swallowed whole with some water. Do not take these tablets with grapefruit or grapefruit juice.

What are the side effects of Lercanidipine?

Like with all medicines, Lercanidipine can cause side effects but they are uncommon so chances are you won’t notice any. Certain rare side effects can be serious. You should contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following:

  • Angina pectoris (chest pain due to not enough blood reaching your heart)
  • Fall in blood pressure
  • Fainting
  • Allergic reactions (symptoms can include itching, rashes, hives and swelling around the face)

Can I take Lercanidipine?

Certain health conditions unrelated to high blood pressure may make Lercanidipine unsuitable to take due to complications that could potentially be caused. You should avoid taking these tablets if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have untreated heart failure
  • You are suffering an obstruction to flow of blood from the heart
  • You have unstable angina
  • It has been a month or less since you experienced a heart attack
  • You have severe liver problems
  • You have severe kidney problems
  • You are taking antifungal problems (such as ketoconazole or itraconazole)
  • You are taking macrolide antibiotics (such as erythromycin or troleandomycin)
  • You are taking antivirals (such as ritonavir)
  • You are taking ciclosporin or similar medication (taken after transplants to prevent organ rejection)
  • You are pregnant, breast-feeding or think you may be pregnant

It’s also best to speak to your doctor or pharmacist about any other medication you are currently taking or plan to take in the near future. Some treatments besides the ones mentioned earlier may interfere with the effects of Lercanidipine. It’s particularly important to mention if you are using any of these medicines:

  • Beta-blockers including water tablets (such as metoprolol and diuretics) or ACE inhibitors that treat high blood pressure
  • Cimetidine (taken to treat ulcers, indigestion or heartburn)
  • Digoxin (taken to treat heart problems)
  • Midazolam (used to help you sleep)
  • Rifampicin (used to treat tuberculosis)
  • Astemizole or Terfenadine (both are taken to treat allergies)
  • Amiodarone or Quinidine (both are taken to treat a fast heartbeat)
  • Phenytoin or Carbamazepine (both are taken to treat epilepsy)

What if I take too much Lercanidipine?

If you accidentally exceed the prescribed dose of Lercanidipine, then you should contact your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department immediately. Take the medication, its packaging and information leaflet with you when seeing a doctor if possible.

If you take a dose that’s higher than recommended, then your blood pressure may become too low and that’ll cause a faster or irregular heartbeat. The error can also lead to unconsciousness.

What if I forget to take Lercanidipine?

If you forget to take a dose of this medication, then it’s best to simply skip it and take the next one that’s due at the usual time. Avoid taking a double dose in order to make up for a forgotten one.

What if I want to stop taking Lercanidipine?

If you want to stop taking this medication after it has been prescribed to you, then it’s best to consult your doctor to determine if this is a suitable decision. By putting a stop to taking these tablets, your blood pressure may increase again to the level it was at before you began using this treatment.
