Felodipine

Felodipine is a calcium-channel blocker that acts on the blood vessels. It is primarily used for the treatment and management of high blood pressure or hypertension. It is also used to treat patients suffering from angina pectoris or chest pain due to heart disease. It may also be used for purposes as determined by your physician.

High blood pressure is a common condition that affects millions of people around the globe. Its long-term force against the arterial wall can be high enough to cause health problems and even death.  Lowering blood pressure helps prevent heart attack, stroke, and kidney problems. Untreated high blood pressure can cause damages to body organs such as the heart, blood vessels, kidney, brain and other vital organs in the body.

High blood pressure is often called a silent killer as most people will not notice any signs of the problems. In fact, many may feel normal. You can have high blood pressure for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damages to your heart and blood vessels continue and can be detected.  High blood pressure generally develops over the years and it affects nearly everyone eventually.  

Why Buy Felodipine?

Felodipine is an effective anti-hypertensive medication. It’s a good option for people with high blood pressure. It is FDA approved for medical use since 1991. Felodipine affects the movement of calcium into the cells of the blood vessels and the heart, thereby relaxing it and increasing the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. This reduces the heart’s workload. You can buy Felodipine here.
