What is Zanidip?

Zanidip is a medicine used to treat high blood pressure. When treating this particular condition, a patient will often make adjustments to their diet and exercise routine in response. But when these changes alone are not enough to keep blood pressure at a safe level, medication like Zanidip can also be used to help. Treatment with Zanidip is meant for adults only (aged 18 and above).

How does Zanidip work?

Zanidip belongs to a group of medicines called Calcium Channel Blockers (dihydropyridine derivatives). The treatment tackles high blood pressure by slowing the movement of calcium into the cells of the heart and the walls of blood vessels. These adjustments make it easier for the heart to pump and also widens blood vessels in the body, improving overall blood flow throughout the body and causing blood pressure to drop.

How do I take Zanidip?

The recommended dose when prescribed Zanidip is to take a 10mg tablet once per day. It’s best to take your dose at the same time each day, preferably in the morning at least 15 minutes before breakfast. That’s mainly because a high-fat meal significantly increases blood levels of the drug.

Each tablet should be swallowed whole with some water. Your doctor may increase your dosage to one 20mg tablet later on, depending on your early response to treatment. Do not take these tablets with grapefruit or grapefruit juice.

What are the side effects of Zanidip?

Like with any other medicine, side effects are possible as a result of taking Zanidip, but none of them are common so chances are you won’t notice any. Some side effects can be serious though, so you should speak to a doctor as soon as possible if you experience any that are particularly troubling or which last an unusually long time.

Cease taking these tablets and seek medical help right away if you experience these particular side effects:

  • Angina pectoris – chest pain due to a lack of blood going to your heart
  • Chest pain
  • Fall in blood pressure
  • Fainting
  • Allergic reaction – symptoms can include a rash, itchy skin, hives and swelling around the face

Can I take Zanidip?

Before you start using Zanidip, it’s important to check whether or not there are any circumstances related to your health that could make using this medication unsafe. Avoid using Zanidip if any of the following applies to you:

  • You are suffering from untreated heart failure
  • You are suffering from an obstruction to flow of blood from the heart
  • You have unstable angina
  • You have experienced a heart attack less than one month ago
  • You have severe liver or kidney problems
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding

If any of these things do apply to you, then speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice on what treatment you could take for your condition. You should also speak to your doctor or pharmacist about any other medication that you are currently using. You should not use Zanidip if you are using these particular drugs:

  • Antifungal medicines (such as ketoconazole or itraconazole)
  • Macrolide antibiotics (such as erythromycin or troleandomycin)
  • Antivirals (such as ritonavir)
  • Ciclosporin or Cyclosporin (both used after transplants to prevent organ rejection)

Even if you are not using any listed above, you should still mention to your doctor or pharmacist everything you are taking. While the following may not stop you from taking Zanidip, they are still particularly important to mention if you use any of these:

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

What if I take too much Zanidip?

If you accidentally take a larger dose of this medicine than you were meant to, then contact your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department right away for advice. When visiting a doctor, take the medication and its container with you if possible.

Taking a larger dose than instructed can lead to having a blood pressure that is too low and symptoms of this can include an irregular or faster heartbeat. It may even lead to unconsciousness.

What if I forget to take Zanidip?

If you forget to take a dose of this medication when you were meant to, simply skip the dose and take the next one at the time it is due. Never take a double dose to make up for a forgotten one. The more doses you miss, the more likely your blood pressure will increase again. If it is your intention to stop using this medication, it’s best to consult your doctor first.
