Calaptin 80 mg (Verapamil) is used primarily for treating hypertension or high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), and certain heart rhythm disorders. Verapamil belongs to a group of drugs called calcium channel blockers. It functions by relaxing the muscles of your heart and blood vessels.
Do not use Verapamil (Calaptin) if you have a known allergy to it or if you have some serious heart conditions such as ‘sick sinus syndrome’ or ‘AV block’ (unless you have a pacemaker), hypotension (low blood pressure), or if you have recently had a heart attack. If you are taking Verapamil for hypertension, you may have to take it for the rest of your life. High blood pressure often doesn’t have any symptoms.
Before taking Verapamil, inform your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs or have kidney disease, liver disease, congestive heart failure, or a nerve-muscle disorder such as myasthenia gravis or muscular dystrophy.
Many drugs can interact with Verapamil. Inform your doctor about any medication you may use, including prescription, OTC, vitamin, and herbal products. Never start a new medication without proper medical advice. Verapamil may impact your thinking capability and reflexes. Take extra care while driving or other activities requiring a high mental awareness and alertness.
This medicine may be just a part of the full line of treatment, including other medicines, diet restrictions, or exercises. Always follow your doctor’s directions carefully.
Verapamil is an FDA pregnancy category C drug. It is known whether this medicine can harm an unborn baby if taken during pregnancy. Verapamil can pass into breast milk and harm a nursing baby. Consult your doctor before taking Verapamil if these cases apply to you.
Avoid or limit intake of grapefruit and its products. Also, avoid alcohol, as alcohol can further decrease your blood pressure.
