Generic Calan | Verapamil Hydrochloride Tablets

Calan is widely prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure. This drug contains generic Verapamil, which belongs to the class of calcium channel ion blocker. It is marketed under oral dosage forms and these tablets are film coated. This drug is also used for controlling heart rate response and other rhythm disturbances, specifically in atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. Verapamil is used for other heart conditions such as chest pain and in irregular heartbeat.

Calan or generic Verapamil works by decreasing the influx of ionic calcium across the cell membrane in arterial smooth muscle as well as in conductile and contractile myocardial cells, which leads to reduction in calcium ions in the heart. Due to the reduction in calcium ions, a considerable dilation occurs in the blood vessels, which further leads to reduction in blood pressure.

• If a patient is suffering from Myasthenia Gravis then do not take this drug.
