What should I know about felodipine before taking it?

Felodipine could interact with your pre-existing conditions or the medications you already take. Hydantoins, barbiturates or carbamazepine could reduce its effects, while erythromycin, azole antifungals or cimetidine could increase its effects. The effects of macrolide immunosuppressives could also be increased if taken at the same time as felodipine. Phenytoin, itraconazole, ranitidine, ketoconazole and certain vitamins may also interact with felodipine. Talk to your doctor before taking felodipine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have liver, kidney, heart or breathing problems.
