Do calcium blockers affect calcium absorption?

Q: I am 47 years old. I am taking calcium channel blocker for hypertension. Will this affect calcium absorption? Is it necessary to take calcium supplements?

A:No, it does not affect absorption or assimilation of calcium. It acts at some cellular receptors that modify the current inside the cells. You do not need any supplements for this reason.
