Felodipine is used in the treatment of increased blood pressure and angina.
How it Works
Felodipine is a calcium channel blocker.Felodipine works by causing some of your blood vessels to relax and widen by blocking the action of calcium on the heart and blood vessels, which then lowers blood pressure. Felodipine also reduces the force and the rate of heartbeat, and this helps to prevent angina chest pain. Felodipine works by blocking the amount of calcium that goes into the smooth muscle cells in the walls of your arteries and in the heart. Calcium is needed for muscles to contract, so reducing the amount of calcium causes the muscle cells to relax.
