Description
Curator's Comment:: description was created based on several sources, including https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/68009568

Nitrendipine is a calcium channel blocker with marked vasodilator action. It is an effective antihypertensive agent and differs from other calcium channel blockers in that it does not reduce glomerular filtration rate and is mildly natriuretic, rather than sodium retentive. By deforming the channel, inhibiting ion-control gating mechanisms, and/or interfering with the release of calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum, nitrendipine inhibits the influx of extracellular calcium across the myocardial and vascular smooth muscle cell membranes. The decrease in intracellular calcium inhibits the contractile processes of the myocardial smooth muscle cells, causing dilation of the coronary and systemic arteries, increased oxygen delivery to the myocardial tissue, decreased total peripheral resistance, decreased systemic blood pressure, and decreased afterload.

Sample Use Guides

Start with 5-20 mg once daily. May be increased to 40 mg in 1 or 2 doses. In hepatic disease reduce the dose to 5 to 10 mg daily.
Route of Administration: Oral
At 1 and 10 uM, nitrendipine reduced peak Cav1.2a1 currents by 64+/-3% (n=4) and 81+/-1% (n=4), respectively, but at these same concentrations only inhibited Cav1.3a1 currents by 23+/-1% (n=8) and 53+/-2% (n=8), respectively.
