patients taking isradipine (DynaCirc) have a higher risk of angina
The several studies about calcium blockers over the last year have raised many questions about safety. These drugs have been linked to a higher risk of MI...GI bleeding...and even cancer.
That's why there's so much interest in a brand-new study in JAMA that suggests patients taking isradipine (DynaCirc) have a higher risk of angina...and other vascular complications.
These unexpected results come from a study that was designed for a DIFFERENT purpose...to see if either isradipine or HCTZ slows the development of atherosclerosis.
