Were you looking for information about Cardene? Cardine is a common misspelling of Cardene.
Cardene® (nicardipine hydrochloride), a part of a group of medications called calcium channel blockers, is commonly used to treat chest pain and high blood pressure. The medication works by slowing down the rate at which calcium moves into the heart and blood vessel walls. As a result, the blood vessels relax, improving blood flow and making it easier for the heart to pump blood. Cardene is not suitable for everyone. A few of the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about before taking the medication include heart disease, liver problems, or kidney disease.
