Generic name: Nicardipine hydrochloride
Cardene, a type of medication called a calcium channel blocker, is prescribed for the treatment of chronic stable angina (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart resulting from clogged arteries, brought on by exertion) and for high blood pressure. Nicardipine Hydrochloride belongs to a group of medicines called calcium channel blockers, which act on the heart and blood vessels. Nicardipine slows the movement of calcium through cells, which has two results. Firstly, it decreases the rate at which the heart beats. As a result, the heart uses less energy and the pain of angina is prevented or relieved. Secondly, it has a widening effect on blood vessels and therefore reduces blood pressure.
