What is Cardene?

Cardene, also known as nicardipine, is a medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Nicardipine can also be used to prevent chest pains and lower your risk for heart attack. Nicardipine is a calcium channel blocker that works by relaxing blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard. Chest pain is controlled by increasing the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.

Make sure to always read the patient information and instructions before using this medication. Always follow your doctor’s directions.

  • This medication is typically taken by mouth, 3 times a day with or without food.
  • Take your dosage at the same time each day for the most benefit.
  • Swallow the extended-release capsules whole, do not split, chew, or crush the capsules.
  • Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick, so do not stop taking this drug even if you feel well.
  • Tell your doctor if your condition worsens, your blood pressure increases, or your chest pain is more severe.

  • About your drug and other allergies.
