User Comments about Lercanidipine
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.

24 Jan 2018 Within 2 days experienced headaches & these got worse each day.The unusual thing was each day a different part of my head was affected. After less than 3 weeks ceased taking these tablets and switched to another drug.Now no more headaches.
