Duration of study was for 9 months from May 2018- January 2019. 100 newly diagnosed mild and moderate hypertensive patients of either sex aged between 18-60yrs were included. ADR were noted and compared using parametric test. Significance was defined as P < 0>
Result: The patients mean age receiving Cilnidipine was 42.98 ± 8.35 and Amlodipine was 44.48 ± 9.03. On comparison of ADRs between Cilnidipine and Amlodipine it is clear that Amlodipine has more ADRs than Cilnidipine. The Comparison of pedal edema between both the groups show a Statistical Significance with p= 0.0003.
