Uses
Calaptin is used in the treatment of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), high blood pressure (hypertension), and angina chest pain.
How it Works
Calaptin is known as a calcium channel blocker. Calaptin works by blocking the amount of calcium that goes into the 'smooth' muscle cells in the walls of blood vessels and in the heart. Calcium is needed for muscles to contract, so reducing the amount of calcium using Calaptin causes the muscle cells to relax. Calaptin reduces the force and the rate of heartbeat, and this helps to prevent angina chest pain.
