Blood Pressure Home > Calcium Channel Blockeers

Were you looking for information about Calcium Channel Blockers? Calcium channel blockeers is a common misspelling of calcium channel blockers.
People who suffer from high blood pressure, certain types of irregular heart rhythms, or chest pain may benefit from calcium channel blockers. These prescription medications work to relax the blood vessels, improving blood flow and making it easier for the heart to pump blood. Calcium channel blockers are taken by mouth, usually one to four times a day (depending on the specific product being used).
Some of the common side effects seen with these drugs include swelling, fatigue, and headaches. Seek medical attention immediately if you happen to overdose on calcium channel blockers. Symptoms of an overdose of calcium channel blockers can include confusion, vomiting, and slurred speech.
