Ranolazine is indicated for treatment of chronic angina. Ranolazine is a piperazine derivative and the mechanism of action of its anti-anginal and anti-ischemic effect is unknown. The anti-anginal and anti-ischemic action of ranolazine is not dependent upon heart rate or blood pressure reduction and does not increase myocardial workload. At therapeutic levels, ranolazine can inhibit the inactivating component of the sodium current, although its relationship to angina symptoms is unknown. It also inhibits the rapid inward rectifying current, thereby prolonging the ventricular action potential. Ranolazine acts by inhibiting sodium and potassium ion channel currents which increased myocardial function. It also inhibits delayed rectifier potassium currents, which prolongs the ventricular action potential duration. In some animal models, ranolazine has shown to have antagonistic activity toward the alpha 1- and beta 1- adrenergic receptors and an inhibitory profile against fatty acid oxidation.
