However, ACTION–A Heart disease Trial Investigating Final result with Nifedipine GITS–provides new details on the drug’s long-term use. GITS modifies the release of the medication to provide stable long-term concentrations of nifedipine in blood. ACTION was designed to investigate the consequences of long-performing nifedipine GITS on the clinical outcomes in sufferers with stable symptomatic heart disease, half of whom had had a previous heart attack. Primary medical outcomes included death from any cause, acute coronary attack, and debilitating stroke.
