Detailed description

The recommended dosage in mild to moderate hypertension is 5 mg once a day.

If 5 mg once a day is not sufficiently effective after at least 4 weeks of treatment, the addition of another antihypertensive agent is recommended (preferably a thiazide diuretic, ACE inhibitor or beta-blocker).

Isradipine can also be added to existing antihypertensive treatment.

Active ingredient

Isradipine is a potent dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker with selective activity on voltage-gated calcium channels (L-type or “long acting”). Isradipine has a higher affinity for such calcium channels in arterial smooth muscle than for those in the myocardium. It thus dilates arterial vascular beds, in particular those of the heart, brain and skeletal muscle without depressing cardiac function.
