    Abstract

    The relative efficacy of nifedipine and slow-release nifedipine (Adalat Retard) in the treatment of stable exertional angina pectoris was evaluated in a double blind randomised crossover study in eight patients on no concomitant antianginal treatment and in 10 patients who were additionally on atenolol. Patients were assessed by angina diaries and exercise testing. Slow-release nifedipine was as effective as nifedipine in the treatment of these patients, both alone and in combination with atenolol.
