Felodipine extended-release tablets, USP are indicated for the treatment of hypertension, to lower blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure decreases the risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events, primarily strokes and myocardial infarctions. Felodipine is a member of the dihydropyridine class of calcium channel antagonists (calcium channel blockers).
