Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Calan
These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.
Question: I have a patient on Calan who is experiencing heavy
vaginal bleeding. She is also on Tenormin. The PDR
notes that Calan can cause vaginal spotting, but have there been a subset of women who are more effected i.e. heavier flow?
Answer: I haven't seen this as a problem with my women on calcium channel blockers, although most are post menopausal. I would ask the scientific department of the manufacturer (found in the front section of the PDR.).
