“CILNIDIPINE  is Calcium Channel Blocker. Is a dual blocker of L-type voltage-gated calcium channels in vascular smooth muscle and N-type calcium channels in sympathetic nerve terminals that supply blood vessels. This is new generation product which is much more advanced than Amlodipine series

Mechanism of Action:

Cilnidipine is a dihydropyridine calcium-channel blocker. It inhibits cellular influx of calcium, thus causing vasodilatation. It has greater selectivity for vascular smooth muscle. It has little or no action at the SA or AV nodes and -ve inotropic activity is rarely seen at therapeutic doses


  • One of the main advantage of CILNIDIPINE is it reduces the incidence of Pedal Edema unlike Amlodipine.

  • CILNIDIPINE due to its blocking action at N-type calcium channel dilates both arteriole & venules as a result the pressure in the capillary bed is reduces. The accumulated fluid in the tissues flows back to veins & thus Cilnidipine minimizes the incidence of pedal edema. L-type calcium channel blocker (Amlodipine) dilates the only arterioles & not the venules, hence blood pressure increases in the capillary bed and are thought to cause leg edema.

  • CILNIDIPINE has similar blood pressure lowering efficacy as compared to amlodipine

  • One of the distinct property of CILNIDIPINE from amlodipine is that it does not cause reflex tachycardia.

Hence Cilnidipine compels to rethink on Hypertension Management:

  • Improves baroreflex sensitivity

  • Improves NO availability

  • Ensures Antiproliferative effect

  • Inhibition of platelet activity

  • Exerts Antiarrhythmic effect

  • Reduction in Serum uric acid
