Thank you for your query.
Adalat Retard contains nifedipine
, which is given for preventing preterm labour in patients prone to it.
Your doctor must have found some sign or symptom, which puts you at risk for preterm labour, and hence the medication would have been prescribed.
, sleepiness are common side effects of this medicine.
Your treating doctor would be the best person to highlight the need and indication for this treatment.
however, it is safe to continue taking it, just make sure you do not get up from lying down position too fast.
Monitor your blood pressure, as the drug can cause hypotension
