The answer is D, and the winners are:Nickysylva4jesus and Maryann. Details below:
Ikorel contains nicorandil, which is a potassium-channel activator with a nitrate
component. It produces arterial and venous vasodilation and is indicated for
prophylaxis and treatment of angina. No clinical significant interaction with
nifedipine has been reported. When nifedipine and nicorandil are used
together, side-effects of vasodilation such as headache and flushing may be
more pronounced. Use of nicorandil may bring about a reduction in blood
pressure as an unwanted effect and it is contraindicated in hypotension.
