Product Description

Calan is a brand name for verapamil HCl, a calcium ion influx inhibitor, used in the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain) and irregular rhythm of the heart. Calan is available by physician prescription.

 

Drug Information

 

Verapamil HCl is a slow-channel blocker or calcium ion antagonist. By blocking calcium channels, verapamil HCl relaxes the muscles of heart and blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more freely, thus easing high blood pressure. Relaxing heart muscles also relieves chest pain in patients suffering from angina. Verapamil can also control the heart rate of patients suffering from faster or irregular heartbeats. Relieving angina and controlling heartbeat allows certain patients to exercise without undesirable effects.

 

four_dot_bullet_red Calan is sometimes used for treating conditions of the heart such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

 

four_dot_bullet_red Calan is available as film-coated tablets in 40, 80 and 120 milligrams of the active ingredient verapamil HCl.

 

Inactive ingredients of Calan includes corn starch, lactose, gelatin, talc, hypromellose, iron oxide colorant, titanium dioxide, hydroxypropyl cellulose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose and polyethylene glycol.

 

Dosage

 

Calan dosage will vary as per physician recommendation and the severity of the condition. Calan is administered orally, either with or without food.

 

Calan is commonly prescribed to be taken three or four times per day. It’s recommended to take Calan the same time each day without missing a dose.

 

It might take more than a week for effects of Calan against hypertension to show.
Patients taking Calan for angina should take regular doses as prescribed, instead of only when chest pain occurs, for the drug to be effective.

 

Do not stop taking Calan suddenly. It could potentially worsen the condition. Calan should be gradually decreased.
Stick to the prescribed dosage. An overdose of verapamil HCl can be fatal. Contact emergency medical care immediately if an overdose is suspected.
