Mechanism of action
Nifedipine has antianginal and antihypertensive activity. The basis of the action of the drug is the ability to delay the penetration of Calcium ions into the cells of the myocardium and smooth muscles of the blood vessels along the "slow" channels of the cell membranes. Under the influence of the drug, the coronary vessels expand, the coronary circulation improves, and the oxygen consumption in the myocardium decreases. The drug also causes arterial vasodilation, reduces the total peripheral vascular resistance and lowers blood pressure. Nifedipine does not have a depressant effect on the conducting system of the heart.
