Calan SR (Verapamil)
Calan SR is a calcium channel blocker which works by relaxing the blood vessels and muscles of the heart to help blood flow. It is used to treat heart rhythm disorders, angina, and high blood pressure. Calan medication helps to lower the blood pressure thus reducing the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and kidney problems. It may also bring down your heart rate.

Calan medication should be taken once daily or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not crush or chew these tablets but swallow them as a whole. The dosage depends on your reaction to Calan SR treatment and the severity of your medical condition.

It might take a week for blood pressure patients to experience any improvement in their condition.
