Procardia is utilized for treating some kinds of angina (chest pain). Procardia is a calcium channel blocking agent. It works by interfering with the normal action of calcium in blood vessel constriction (relaxes the blood vessels) and heart muscle contraction (heart may beat with less force and pump out less blood) and nerve conduction inside heart (heart may beat slower and more regularly). Calcium channel blockers are used to dilate (widen) the arteries with the heart along with other arteries (reduce angina chest pain reducing high blood pressure), and stabilize the heart rhythm in conditions in which the guts is beating too fast or perhaps an irregular rhythm (antiarrhythmic effects).
Use Procardia as directed by your doctor.
