Product Description:

Nifedipine belongs to a type of drug named calcium channel blocker. It functions by stimulating the activity of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. As a consequence, nifedipine soothes blood vessels and improves the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart while decreasing its workload. The medicine is prescribed alone or together with different medications to treat critical chest pain (angina) or high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure improves the workload of the heart and arteries. This can harm the blood vessels of the heart, brain, and kidneys, occurring in a stroke, heart dysfunction, or kidney failure.
