Procardia is used for treating some kinds of angina (chest pain). Procardia can be a calcium channel blocking agent. It works by interfering with the standard action of calcium in circulatory constriction (relaxes the arteries) and heart muscle contraction (heart may beat with less force and pump out less blood) and nerve conduction inside the heart (heart may beat less quickly plus much more regularly). Calcium channel blockers are widely-used to dilate (widen) the arteries from the heart as well as other arteries (reduce angina chest pain minimizing high blood pressure), and stabilize the center rhythm in conditions in which the heart is beating too fast or perhaps an irregular rhythm (antiarrhythmic effects).
Use Procardia as directed through your doctor.
