Calcium channel blockers lower your blood pressure by preventing calcium from entering the cells of your heart and arteries. Calcium causes the heart and arteries to contract more strongly. By blocking calcium, calcium channel blockers allow blood vessels to relax and open.

Despite their name, CCBs can be safely taken with oral calcium supplements that may be prescribed to prevent or treat osteoporosis. Drinking grapefruit juice is not recommended and can, with some CCBs (nifedipine, diltiazem and verapamil), increase the risk of side effects.

The dosage will depend on your overall health and medical history. Your doctor will also take your age into consideration before prescribing a blood pressure-lowering medication.

How do I take it? There are many different kinds of calcium channel blockers. How much medicine you need will depend on the CCB you are taking. You and your healthcare provider will determine the type and dose that’s right for you. Be Aware: If you are taking an “extended-release” CCB, never chew, cut, crush, or dissolve the pills.

How long do calcium channel blockers take to work? Calcium channel blockers start working within 2 – 4 hours of taking the first dose, but it can take 3 – 4 weeks for the full effects to kick in. In some cases, such as with amlodipine, taking the medication at night could reduce your blood pressure more than taking it in the morning.

Calcium channel blocker/renin-angiotensin system inhibitor (CCB/renin inhibitor) combos are antihypertensive drugs used to reduce high blood pressure (hypertension). CCBs also known as calcium channel antagonists work by blocking the entry of calcium into the cells through voltage-gated calcium channels present in the smooth muscle of arteries.

The more cardioselective CCBs (verapamil and diltiazem) decrease heart rate and contractility, which leads to a reduction in myocardial oxygen demand, which makes them excellent antianginal drugs. CCBs can also dilate coronary arteries and prevent or reverse coronary vasospasm (as occurs in Printzmetal's variant angina ), thereby increasing oxygen supply to the myocardium.

Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are a class of drugs used to treat high blood pressure, angina, abnormal heart rhythms, migraines, pulmonary hypertension, cardiomyopathies, and Raynaud's phenomenon. Side effects include headache, constipation, rash, nausea, flushing, edema (fluid accumulation in tissues), drowsiness, low blood pressure, and dizziness.

Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are a group of drugs that work in a similar way in the body, called a drug class. As their name suggests, they work by blocking calcium channels in the body, which are important for several normal bodily functions. In particular, calcium is needed for the muscle cells to contract and work properly.

Calcium channel blocking agents restrict the amount of calcium entering cardiac and smooth muscle cells by blocking voltage-gated calcium channels. This causes blood vessels to relax and widen (vasodilate), improves oxygen supply to the heart, and lowers blood pressure. Some calcium channel blockers also slow the heart rate.
