Plendil is a Calcium Blocker. M J Fox site just announced that a 3 year old phase 3 study of another Calcium Blocker called Isradipine was called off because it was not showing any results. Does that mean that Plendil is now out? Who knows. Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
Interesting. So a cooperative doctor could prescribe Plendil for us tomorrow, then we could see if it worked. Since it has been approved as safe, we would just have to check the contraindications and drug interactions, and if these were negative, what would we have to lose?
