Lercanidipine is prescribed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Although people with high blood pressure often do not feel unwell, if left untreated, high blood pressure can harm the heart and damage blood vessels, and could lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Lercanidipine is known as a calcium-channel blocker because it works by affecting the way calcium passes into certain muscle cells in your blood vessels. The muscle cells need calcium to contract. Lacidipine reduces the amount of calcium that goes into these muscle cells. This causes the muscle cells to relax, which widens your blood vessels and lowers your blood pressure.
Take lercanidipine once a day, preferably in the morning. You should take the tablet about 30 minutes before you eat.
Do not drink grapefruit juice whilst you are on lercanidipine. It can interact with the medicine and alter its effect.
When you first start lercanidipine you may get headache, feel flushed, or feel dizzy. These effects are usually mild and only last for a few days
Before taking lercanidipine
Some medicines are not suitable for people with certain conditions, and sometimes a medicine can only be used if extra care is taken. For these reasons, before you start taking lercanidipine it is important that your doctor knows:
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
If you have any problems with the way your liver works, or any problems with the way your kidneys work.
If you have a heart condition, or angina chest pain, or if you have recently had a heart attack.
If you have a rare inherited blood disorder called porphyria.
If you are taking or using any other medicines. This includes any medicines you are taking which are available to buy without a prescription, as well as herbal and complementary medicines.
If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine.
How to take lercanidipine
Before you start the treatment, read the manufacturer's printed information leaflet from inside the pack. It will give you more information about lercanidipine, and will also provide you with a full list of the side-effects which you could experience from taking it.
Lercanidipine is available in two strengths of tablet - 10 mg and 20 mg. The usual starting dose is 10 mg daily. If it becomes necessary, your doctor will increase your dose after a few weeks to 20 mg daily. Take the tablets exactly as your doctor tells you to.
It is likely that you will be advised to take your dose in the morning before breakfast. Try to take your doses at the same time each day. Having a routine will help you to remember to take your doses regularly.
Swallow the tablet with a drink of water. You should take lercanidipine when your stomach is empty, so about 30 minutes before a meal. This is because fatty food can increase the amount of lercanidipine your body absorbs, which could then lead to you experiencing side-effects.
If you forget to take a dose at your usual time, take it 30 minutes before your next meal. If you do not remember until the following day, leave out the missed dose. Do not take two doses together to make up for a forgotten dose.
