Generic Calan is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain), and to control some types of irregular heartbeats. It relaxes your blood vessels so your heart does not have to pump as hard. It also increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart to control chest pain. If taken regularly, Verapamil controls chest pain, but it does not stop chest pain once it starts. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor for more information.
