Cilnidipine, the novel, 3rd generation CCB & used as anti-hypertensive. Cilnidipine is a dihydropyridine CCB with slow onset. It is vasoselective, and has a strong vasodepressor effect, and an arrhythmia-inhibiting effect. Cilnidipine is a dual blocker with L-type and N- type calcium channel blocking function
MODE OF ACTION:
Cilnidipine acts on the L-type calcium channels of blood vessels by blocking the incoming calcium and suppressing the contraction of blood vessels, thereby reducing blood pressure.
Cilnidipine also works on the N-type calcium channel located at the end of the sympathetic nerve, inhibiting the emission of norepinephrine and suppressing the increase in stress blood pressure.
