Full Prescribing Info
Adverse Reactions
Felodipine can cause flushing, headache, palpitations, dizziness and fatigue. Most of these reactions are dose-dependent and appear at the start of treatment or after a dose increase. Should such reactions occur, they are usually transient and diminish with time.
Dose-dependent ankle swelling can occur in patients treated with felodipine. This results from precapillary vasodilatation and is not related to any generalised fluid retention.
Mild gingival enlargement has been reported in patients with pronounced gingivitis/periodontitis. The enlargement can be avoided or reversed by careful dental hygiene.
The adverse drug reactions listed as follows have been identified from clinical trials and from Post Marketing Surveillance. (See table).
The following definitions of frequencies are used: Very common ≥1/10; common ≥1/100 and <1/10; uncommon ≥1/1000 and <1/100; rare ≥1/10000 and <1/1000; very rare <1/10000.
