In order to evaluate the antihypertensive efficacy and tolerability of the new formulation of nifedipine, the Nifedipine GITS, 87 patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension were selected. After an eight-week treatment period, diastolic and systolic blood pressures were reduced significantly (p0.001). There was no significant change in heart rate despite a significant reduction in blood pressure. Side effects were uncommon, mild and transient. Nifedipine GITS appears to be effective in a daily dose of 30 mg in a single administration
