calcium channel blocker

Abbreviation: CCB

These drugs are used to treat angina, hypertension, vascular spasm, intracranial bleeding, congestive heart failure, and supraventricular tachycardia. Because hypotension occurs as both an intended and, occasionally, an unwelcome effect, blood pressure must be monitored especially closely during the initial treatment period.
