Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

Bayview Pharmacy's Verapamil HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules (Gluten Free) are meticulously formulated to provide effective treatment for a range of cardiovascular conditions. These include hypertension, angina pectoris, atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. The capsules are designed with Methocel E4M, a controlled-release polymer, which ensures a gradual and sustained release of the active ingredient, verapamil hydrochloride, over an extended period of time. This slow release mechanism allows for consistent therapeutic effects, reduced dosing frequency, and improved patient compliance, particularly beneficial for medications requiring a controlled and prolonged release profile.

Verapamil hydrochloride, the active ingredient, is a calcium channel blocker. It functions by inhibiting the influx of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. This action results in a decrease in blood pressure and heart rate, effectively alleviating the symptoms of the aforementioned cardiovascular conditions. The slow release capsules are also gluten free, making them a suitable choice for individuals with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.

Bayview Pharmacy's Verapamil HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules (Gluten Free) represent a safe and effective treatment option for those managing cardiovascular conditions. We encourage anyone with questions or concerns about this formulation to reach out to us for further information and guidance.

Verapamil HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules (Gluten Free) is a compounded formulation designed to provide a controlled and prolonged release of the active ingredient, Verapamil. This formulation utilizes Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer, which ensures the gradual release of the medication over an extended period of time. This slow-release mechanism offers sustained therapeutic effects, reduces the frequency of dosing, and improves patient compliance, making it an ideal choice for medications requiring a controlled release profile.

Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker that is primarily used in the treatment of hypertension, angina pectoris, atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. By blocking calcium channels in the heart and blood vessels, Verapamil helps to lower blood pressure and improve blood flow. Additionally, it is used to slow the heart rate and reduce the risk of irregular heartbeats.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

Verapamil HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules (Gluten Free) is a potent medication primarily used in the management of various cardiovascular conditions. These include hypertension, angina pectoris, atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia. The medication functions by inhibiting the action of specific chemicals in the body that stimulate the heart to beat with increased force and speed. This action aids in lowering blood pressure and enhancing the flow of blood through the heart.

Verapamil HCl is classified as a calcium channel blocker. This means it obstructs the flow of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. This blockage allows these cells to relax and widen, which in turn reduces the workload on the heart and improves blood flow. This mechanism of action is crucial in managing cardiovascular conditions and improving the overall health of the patient.

The Verapamil HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules (Gluten Free) are designed to be taken orally, typically once or twice a day as prescribed by a healthcare professional. It is crucial to adhere to the prescribed dosage and not to discontinue the medication without first consulting with your doctor. This is because abrupt discontinuation can lead to adverse effects or a rebound of the condition being treated.

The capsules are formulated with Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer. This formulation is designed to gradually release the encapsulated medication or active ingredient over an extended period. This slow-release mechanism offers sustained therapeutic effects, reduces the frequency of dosing, and improves patient compliance, especially for medications requiring a controlled and prolonged release profile. This makes Verapamil HCl 120 mg Slow Release Capsules (Gluten Free) an effective and convenient treatment option for patients with cardiovascular conditions.
