Possible Interaction: Calcium Channel Blockers and Digitalis

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Calcium antagonists and other positive inotropic drugs, other than digitalis , should be avoided as far as possible.

Since we know that the inotropic properties of digitalis are probably due to an increase of the slow calcium inward current, we conclude that the observed effect would be due to a blockade of these channels by calcium blockers.
