Drug Info for nimodipine

Nimodipine is used to decrease brain damage that may be caused by a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding in the space surrounding the brain that occurs when a weakened blood vessel in the brain bursts). Nimodipine is in a class of medications called calcium channel blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels in the brain to allow more blood to flow to damaged areas.

Nimodipine is a calcium channel blocking agent used to prevent brain damage in patients who have suffered from an aneurysm. An aneurysm occurs when a blood vessel in the brain has been ruptured or dilated. Nimodipine works to improve the flow of blood in the brain by opening the blood vessel.
