User Comments about Lercanidipine
21 May 2018 I started on10mgx1 per day then increased to 1x10mg twice per day as BP was not controlled. Had to go back to 1x10mg per day as side effects were intolerable.(swollen, hard, red, hot lower legs and feet , worse late evening and disturbance of sleep. Also I have itchy rash on my back. ) Now have furosemide added to medications although as I have level3 kidney disease this is not ideal. My BP is still erratic and sometimes concerning.

22 Apr 2018 I have switched from Lercanidipine to taking Felodipine 5 mg twice a day. This works fine for me, the reason for this was I could not tolerate taking the 10 mg at one time.

22 Apr 2018 I switched from Lercanidipine to taking Felodipine 5 mg twice a day morning and evening. This has worked fine, the reason for this is I had problems with taking the full dosage in one go.
