Adalat and Adalat XL are used to treat angina (chest pain caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries or spasm of the arteries). Adalat XL is also used to treat high blood pressure. Adalat and Adalat XL are calcium channel blockers. They ease the workload of the heart by relaxing the muscles in the walls of the arteries allowing them to dilate (expand). This improves blood flow through the heart and throughout the body reduces blood pressure and helps prevent angina. Adalat XL is taken once a day and provides a steady rate of medication over a 24-hour period.

ADULTS

The usual starting dose of Adalat is one 10-milligram capsule 3 times a day. The usual range is 10 to 20 milligrams 3 times a day. Some people may need 20 to 30 milligrams 3 or 4 times a day. Usually you will not take more than 120 milligrams in a day and should take no more than 180 milligrams.

The starting dose of Adalat XL is usually a 30- or 60-milligram tablet taken once daily. Your doctor may increase the dose over 1 to 2 weeks if not satisfied with the way the drug is working. Doses above 120 milligrams per day are not recommended.

Although no serious side effects have been reported when Procardia XL is stopped your doctor will probably have you lower the dose gradually under close supervision.
