Product Description:

General information
Calan is called a calcium channel blocker. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. It is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Calan is also used to prevent chest pain (angina). It is also used to control your heart rate if you have a fast or irregular heartbeat (such as atrial fibrillation).
Take Calan exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended starting dose for treating high blood pressure (hypertension) is 80 mg three times per day. A lower starting dose (40 mg three times daily) may be recommended for elderly people, or those who have liver problems. Typical doses for treating chest pain (angina) range from 80 mg to 120 mg three times daily. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using this medication even if you feel fine. Take it at the same times each day.
