The present study was undertaken to evaluate the role of felodipine, a newer calcium antagonist, in the management of congestive heart failure. Sixteen patients of congestive heart failure due to different causes received felodipine for 2 weeks. Ejection fraction, oxygen uptake and exercise capacity were evaluated after 2 weeks. Adverse reactions were noted. Felodipine therapy resulted in increased ejection fraction, oxygen uptake and exercise capacity. The drug was well tolerated. It is concluded that felodipine may be useful in the management of congestive heart failure.
