About Lercanidipine Tablets
Lercanidipine is a calcium channel blocker used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It widens the blood vessels, which decreases the pressure on the heart. It is a daily tablet available in two strengths: 10mg and 20mg. Lercanidipine may take up to two weeks to reach its full effect, but it has a longer duration than other similar medicines. Lercanidipine is popular because, for some people, it is more easily tolerated than other blood pressure medicines.
Calcium channel blockers are used to treat mild to moderate cases of hypertension. Lercanidipine works by targeting muscle cells on the arterial walls throughout the body. These muscle cells require calcium to contract, and calcium channel blockers actively reduce their access to calcium. This means instead of contracting, the arterial muscles start to relax. This results in a mild widening of the arteries, which makes it easier for the heart to circulate blood.
