About Felodipine

How to take Felodipine

  • You can take Felodipine with or without food
  • You should avoid a meal which is high in fat and/or carbohydrates
  • If you’re going to take it with food, take it after a light meal.
  • You should take your tablet first thing in the morning because Felodipine is type of prolonged release medication -his means it slowly releases the drug over the course of the day rather than all at once.
  • So, the best time to take your Felodipine is after having a light breakfast first thing in the morning.

Avoid grapefruit juice – whent taking Felodipine you should avoid consuming grapefruit juice. There are chemicals in grapefruit juice which can inhibit the action of certain medications. In the case of Felodipine, interactions with grapefruit juice can worsen its side effects.

Set an alarm – if you are likely to forget to take Felodipine first thing in the morning, it is a good idea to set an alarm to remind you to take it. Or you could place Felodipine in a place which may act as a reminder e.g. near the breakfast cereal.

Dosage

Usually, when you first begin taking Felodipine the dosage will be 5mg per day. However, this may be lower for elderly patients, normally 2.5mg per day.

The dosage you are first prescribed may not necessarily be the dose you will carry on taking. For example:

  • It will depend on why you need the medicine in the first place.
  • If there is no change in your blood pressure on the starting dose, then your GP may decide to double it to 10mg per day and monitor the results.
  • If your blood pressure then suddenly drops it may be that your starting dose is too high, in that case your GP may halve the dose to 2.5mg per day.
