What is MYOGARD?

  • MYOGARD is an active ingredient called Nifedipine which belongs to a group of medicines called calcium antagonists
  • It works by relaxing and expanding the blood vessels and arteries. This makes the blood flow more easily and lowers blood pressure
  • MYOGARD allows more blood and oxygen to reach the heart and decreases the strain on it
