Lerkamen is a blocker of slow Calcium channels, a derivative of the dihydropyridine series. Inhibits transmembrane calcium current in cardiomyocytes and smooth muscle cells. The mechanism of the hypotensive effect is due to the direct relaxing effect on vascular smooth muscle, as a result of which the OPSS is reduced. It has a prolonged antihypertensive effect. Due to the high selectivity of the negative inotropic effect is absent.
