Abstract/OtherAbstract:
During the period February 1983 to December 1984 the Swedish Adverse Drug Reactions Advisory Committee received 80 reports describing 116 adverse reactions with a possible or probable connection to nifedipine. The most frequently reported reactions are oedema, tachycardia, headache and rash. Confusion and sleep disorders constitute 8 cases. Impaired angina is a potentially serious reaction and one patient developed myocardial infarction.
