The investigation was designed to test whether nicardipine and tiapamil interact with digoxin, resulting in increased plasma digoxin levels. Ten patients mean age, 67 years) taking 0.13 mg to 0.25 mg of digoxin daily were given nicardipine (20 mg TID), and eight patients (mean age, 77 years) taking 0.13 mg to 0.25 of digoxin daily were given tiapam...

... Coadministration of the calcium antagonists has been reported to result in an increase in the steadystate serum concentration of digoxin. [12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21] Changes in serum concentration have been related to decreases in drug clearance, either renal or extrarenal or both. Concomitant administration of digoxin and calcium antagonists (diltiazem, nicardipine, nifedipine or verapamil) resulted in a 21.6% decrease in digoxin clearance. ...
