Angina (Prinzmetal's or Variant Angina)
M-Low (Amlodipine) is a long acting dihydropyridine
calcium antagonist or calcium channel blocker. Its generic
name is Amlodipine besylate. It inhibits the transmembrane
influx of calcium ions into cardiac and vascular smooth muscles.
Since calcium is important in muscle contraction, blocking
calcium transport relaxes artery muscles and dilates coronary
arteries & other arteries of the body. By relaxing these
arteries it lowers blood pressure and also prevents from chest
pain resulting due to coronary artery spasm.
Tablet 5mg and 10mg.
