This medcine is indicated in chronic stable angina (consistent duration and severity of brief episodes of pain, pressure, squeezing and tightness in chest), coronary artery disease (narrowing or blockage of arteries of heart muscles) with normal sinus rhythm (normal heart rate) who have a contraindication or intolerance to beta blockers when monotherapy is inadequate and heart rate is more than 60 beats per minute.  It is also used in patients with stable chronic heart failure, with systolic dysfunction (impairment in contraction of ventricles). In patients with stable chronic heart failure (chronic heart failure in which clinical condition didn’t get any worse) with systolic dysfunction (impairment in contraction of ventricles), in sinus rhythm (pace with which heart beats) rate equals to 75 beats per minute in combination with standard therapy, including beta blockers or when beta blockers are contraindicated, or not tolerated. 

Side Effects

Its side effects include blurred vision, bradycardia (slow heart rate), 1st degree AV block (when there is a delay in conduction), ventricular extrasystole (premature contraction of ventricles), blood pressure changes, dizziness, headache etc.
