  • Nifedipine (brand name Adalat, Nifedical, and Procardia) is a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker.
  • Nifedipine is a high blood pressure (hypertension) and migraine medication taken as a daily pill.
  • Nifedipine belongs to a class of drugs known as calcium channel blockers (CCBs).
  • Nifedipine comes as a capsule and an extended-release tablet (long-acting) to take by mouth.
    It is a yellow crystalline powder.
  • In wet spherical agglomeration (WSA) process the nifedipine particles were agglomerated by dropping a chloroform solution containing a bridging liquid.
  • In spherical crystallization(SC) process the nifedipine microspheres were prepared by pouring a 56°C acetone solution containing 0.5% nifedipine into 100 mL 25°C water.
  • Differential scanning calorimetry(DSC) showed no change occurred during preparation of the nifedipine microspheres.
  • The nifedipine GITS formulation provides a once-daily dosing regimen with a continuous and slow release of the drug into the intestinal tract, resulting in a smooth plasma concentration/time profile.
  • The modulation of spontaneous release of acetylcholine by specific Ca2 channel blockers was studied at neonatal rat neuromuscular junction.
    Nifedipine (NIF) a 1, 4-dihydropyridine calcium channel antagonist, undergoes photodegradation to nitroso analogues of dehydronifedipine (NDNIF) when exposed to sunlight.
  • Both diltiazem and nifedipine are the calcium channel blockers, which have gained increasing acceptance in the treatment of angina pectoris, hypertension and cardiac arrhythmia.
  • Nifedipine is used sometimes to treat migraine headaches, Raynaud's syndrome, congestive heart failure, and cardiomyopathy.
  • Nifedipine is used as a coronary vasodilator and an antianginal in the treatment of coronary insufficiency and angina of effort.
  • 0.5% nifedipine ointment is used in healing acute anal fissue and preventing its progress to chronicity.
  • The main function of Nifedipine is vascular dilation associated with a decrease in peripheral resistance and blood pressure.
    Nifedipine is a type II calcium channel antagonist, which inhibits the influx of calcium ions into myometrial and other cells and thereby reduces muscle contractility.
  • The conformation of nifedipine, a cardiac and smooth muscle calcium ion channel antagonist is studied in a hydrated bilayer of forty nine l,2-di-myristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphorylcholine (DMPC) molecules using molecular dynamics (MD) simulation technique.
  • NADH fluorophotography technique used in the study of nifedipine combined with reperfusion in experimental myocardial infarction.
    The influence of Nifedipine anf captropill on liver blood flow can be investigated using echo-doppler technique.
  • Two simple, sensitive and economical spectrophotometric methods were developed for the determination of nifedipine in pharmaceutical formulations.
  • Nifedipine has been on the market for 20 years.
