Significance of Pinom A Tab 20mg

Amlodipine belongs to a class of medications called calcium channel blockers These medications block the transport of calcium into the smooth muscle cells lining the coronary arteries and other arteries of the body Since calcium is important in muscle contraction blocking calcium transport relaxes artery muscles and dilates coronary arteries and other arteries of the body By relaxing coronary arteries amlodipine is useful in preventing chest pain angina resulting from coronary artery spasm Relaxing the muscles lining the arteries of the rest of the body lowers the blood pressure which reduces the burden on the heart as it pumps blood to the body Reducing heart burden lessens the heart muscles demand for oxygen and further helps to prevent angina in patients with coronary artery disease
