Samlod-2.5 Mechanism of Action (MOA)
SAMLOD (S-amlodipine) is the active enantiomer of amlodipine. SAMLOD blocks the transmembrane influx of calcium into the vascular smooth muscle and cardiac muscle through L-type calcium channel resulting in vasodilation and hence lowers blood pressure. Dilation of coronary arteries helps to increase the delivery of oxygen to the myocardial tissues in patients with vasospastic angina.
