Generic Name: Verapamil Immediate-Release Tablets (ver-AP-a-mil)
Brand Name: Calan
Calan is used for:
Treating high blood pressure and chronic stable angina (chest pain). It may be used alone or with other medicines. It is also used for treating and preventing supraventricular tachycardia (a rhythm disturbance of the heart) and for controlling heart rate response to other rhythm disturbances, specifically atrial fibrillation and a trial flutter. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Calan is a calcium channel blocker. It works by relaxing (dilating) your blood vessels, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing heart rate, which lowers the workload on the heart. It also dilates coronary arteries, increasing blood flow to the heart. It also works by slowing the electrical conduction in the heart, slowing heart rate, and/or normalizing heart rhythm.
Calcium channel blockers do not affect calcium levels in the blood or calcium in the bones.
