What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Calan (Verapamil) is in a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. Verapamil relaxes (widens) blood vessels (veins and arteries), which makes it easier for the heart to pump and reduces its workload. Generic Calan is an FDA approved heart medication used to treat an array of conditions including high blood pressure.
Generic Calan also marketed as: Verapamil, Isoptin, Verelan, Bosoptin, Covera-HS.
