Pharmacological influence of Calan is explained by braking of a flow of calcium ions through the slowed-down calcic tubules of cellular covers of smooth muscle structure of vessels and a cardiac muscle. Calan is prescribed if it was diagnosed paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (except WPW syndrome), sinus tachycardia, premature atrial contraction, blinking and atrial flutter, stenocardia (inc. stress, postinfarction), arterial hypertension, hypertensive crisis, idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Cardura is consumed to rebalance the blood pressure within hypertension, as well as to cure benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This drug was not distinguished by a negative effect on the metabolism, which was often recorded in analogs. That's why Cardura earned positive reviews from people suffering from cardiovascular insufficiency, asthma, diabetes.
Casodex - racemic mix, a nonsteroid anti-androgen which does not influence endocrine system in any way. The mechanism of effect of active component consists in its ability to contact androgenic receptors of "wild type" and to oppress the activity, thereby, bringing a prostate tumor into a regression stage. Casodex is taken as a medicine for monotherapy, and as a part of complex treatment (radiation).
Isoptin is a calcium ion antagonist of the phenylalkylamine group. It improves myocardial perfusion, eliminates coronary spasm, reduces myocardial oxygen demand. It is used for diseases of the cardiovascular system.
BCCC; a derivative of diphenylalkylamine. Has antianginal, anti-arrhythmic and hypotensive effect. The antianginal effect is associated with both direct action on the myocardium and with the effect on peripheral hemodynamics. It is prescribed with stenocardia, supraventricular tachycardia, sinus tachycardia, ciliary tachyarrhythmia, atrial flutter, atrial extrasystole, arterial hypertension, GOKMP, primary hypertension in the "small" circle of the circulation.
