Thanks for your question.
Calcium channel blockers widen the blood vessels.This causes the heart to pump blood more efficiently by reducing the pressure against which heart has to pump blood.
There are particular indications where particular drugs are recommended.
For example in chronic kidney disease patients lisinopril can be used but calcium channel blockers cannot be used.
In hypertensives having no co morbidity either can be used .
Do you have any more questions?
