What happens if I miss a dose (Cleviprex)?
Since clevidipine is given as needed by a healthcare professional, it is not likely that you will miss a dose.
What happens if I overdose (Cleviprex)?
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have received too much of this medication.
What should I avoid while receiving clevidipine (Cleviprex)?
Avoid getting up too fast from a sitting or lying position, or you may feel dizzy. Get up slowly and steady yourself to prevent a fall.
What other drugs will affect clevidipine (Cleviprex)?
Tell your doctor about all other heart or blood pressure medications you are using.
Tell your doctor if you are also taking a beta-blocker drug (such as Blocadren, Corgard, Inderal, Normodyne, Tenormin, Toprol, Trandate, Zebeta, and others). You should not suddenly stop taking the beta-blocker. Stopping a beta-blocker too quickly can cause serious heart problems that will not be prevented by clevidipine.
There may be other drugs that can interact with clevidipine. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
Where can I get more information?
