> I think I posted this. I carried the gel caps of nefedipine around also. I had several hypertensive episodes and took one and monitored my bp to decide if I needed another. I was supposed to go to hospital after taking it but I never did. I was tired of the perilous treatment and felt safer doing it myself!

I really haven't seen anything compelling to choose one method over another. However, I am still carrying nifedipine capsules. I once came across some literature claiming that overall, nifedipine might be counterproductive as it confounds the protocol used by hospital emergency rooms to treat the crisis with phentolamine i.v., the treatment of choice.
