Heart Disease in Women and the Symptoms PLEASE pay attention. The symptoms for heart disease in women is very different than in men. I have been having problems for a long time and kept thinking it was other issues. Turns out that I have Prinzmetal Angina.
Nifedipine (Adalat, Nifediac, Cordipin, Nifedical, and Procardia) is a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker. Its main uses are as an antianginal (especially in Prinzmetal's angina) and antihypertensive, Raynaud's phenomenon, premature labor, and painful spasms of the esophagus such as in cancer and tetanus patients. It is also commonly used for the small subset of of pulmonary hypertension patients whose symptoms respond to calcium channel blockers.
