Drug Names(s): lercanidipine, Corifeo

Description: BioMedTracker maintains separate drug profiles for the combination and single formulations of Lercanidipine. Please also see Zanipress.

Lercanidipine (Zanidip) is calcium channel blocker that inhibits the influx of calcium ions through L-type calcium channels in cell membranes.

Lercanidipine slows the movement of calcium through cells, which has two results. It decreases the rate at which the heart beats and also has a widening effect on blood vessels (vasodilation). This combination causes blood pressure to be reduced.
