Stadovas 10 Tab.
Rx

Amlodipine exerts antihypertensive action by a direct vasodilating effect on the smooth muscles surrounding the peripheral arterial blood vessels, with less effect on the cardiac muscle calcium channels. Amlodipine therefore does not worsen atrioventricular (AV)-conduction in heart, and amlodipine does not give any negative inotropic effect.
