Drug Mode of Action ::  

Nifedipine prevents Ca ion from entering the slow channels of cardiac and smooth muscles during depolarisation, producing peripheral and coronary vasodilatation. It reduces afterload, peripheral resistance and BP; increases coronary blood flow and causes reflex tachycardia. It has little or no effect on cardiac conduction and rarely has negative inotropic activity.

Drug Interactions ::

Enhanced antihypertensive effects w/ other antihypertensives, aldesleukin, and antipsychotics. Concomitant use w/ fentanyl during surgery caused severe hypotension. May modify insulin and glucose responses. Attenuation of tachycardic effect when used w/ benazerpril. Prothrombin time may be increased w/ coumarin anticoagulants. Increased serum levels w/ CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g. azole antifungals, cimetidine, erythromycin, HIV-protease inhibitors, nefazodone, fluoxetine, quinupristin/dalfopristin). Potentially Fatal: Decreased bioavailability and efficacy w/ strong CYP3A4 inducers (e.g. rifampicin, phenytoin, carbamazepine).
