- 1). Check the prescription label on the calcium channel blocker for warnings of adverse reaction combinations. All prescriptions differ depending on the compound and the dosage.
- 2). Avoid taking medications known to create reactions with calcium channel blockers, such as diuretics, beta-blockers, digitalis heart medicines, medications used to correct irregular heart rhythms, anti-seizure medications and cyclosporine. These drugs in combination with calcium channel blockers can reduce or increase the reactions of both drugs, potentially creating negative effects either way.
