Headache is a common symptom of nifedipine. Eat less salty foods and avoid stress. Also, get your BP levels checked to prevent hypertension that may be harmful for you and your baby. You can also visit my clinic International Fertility Centre located in New Delhi that offers varied gynecology treatments and services to help you have a successful treatment. You can mail me your contact details so that I can get in touch with you.

Headache is common side effect of nifedipine. Labetalol will be preferable. Avoid extra salt in your diet and any kind of stress. You will also need Aspirin to prevent complications. See an endocrinologist for your sugars. Adequate control of hypertension and sugars is very important to avoid complications in you and the baby

Yes as all explained it's a side effect of nifedipine , but it's very early to have this condition. Whether obstetric scan and uterine Doppler scan are advised, based on that there are few other supplements like ecospirin can be added to avoid further complications.kindly discuss with ur obstetrician and follow her/his advice, needs regular and frequent monitoring of urself with doctor.avoid stress!
Take care..
