5) Because calcium channel blockers are associated with gingival overgrowth
, and because other drugs known to cause gingival overgrowth
(such as phenytoin) are associated with elevated levels of homocysteine, (6,7) it follows that patients treated with calcium channel blockers might be at risk for increased homocysteine levels.
