Q: Is it okay to take more than one Norvasc per day?

A: Norvasc (Tensigal) is a calcium-channel blocker which is used to treat high blood pressure and other heart conditions. Norvasc comes in three different strength tablets; 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg. The maximum dose of Norvasc is 10 mg daily. Patients who are elderly, have liver impairment or kidney impairment may need lower doses. Talk to your health care provider about what dose of Norvasc is right for you. You may also find helpful information on Norvasc at //www.everydayhealth.com/drugs/norvasc. Laura Cable, PharmD

Cautions

Symptomatic hypotension with or without syncope possible, particularly with severe aortic stenosis; because of gradual onset of action, acute hypotension unlikely.

Worsening of angina and acute myocardial infarction (MI) can develop after dose is started or increased, particularly with severe obstructive CAD.

Peripheral edema may develop within 2-3 weeks of starting therapy.

Use with caution in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; reduction in afterload may worsen symptoms associated with this condition.

May reduce coronary perfusion and result in ischemia in patients with severe aortic stenosis; use caution.

Extensively metabolized by liver; titrate dose slowly with severe hepatic impairment.

Initiate at lower dose in the elderly.

Titrate dose every 7-14 days on a given dose; peak antihypertensive effect is delayed.

Co-administration with CYP3A inhibitors (moderate and strong) results in increased systemic exposure to Tensigal and may require dose reduction; monitor for symptoms of hypotension and edema when Tensigal is co-administered with CYP3A inhibitors to determine the need for dose adjustment.

Tensigal may increase systemic exposure of cyclosporine or tacrolimus when co-administered; frequent monitoring of trough blood levels of cyclosporine and tacrolimus recommended; adjust dose when appropriate

General

  • Take Tensigal at the same time every day.
  • You can cut or crush the tablet.
