Acute withdrawal of calcium channel blockers can lead to the so-called calcium channel blocker withdrawal phenomenon, in particular, when high dosages are used. In the case presented, inadequate drug substitution led to this phenomenon which resulted in a serious course of events. Careful monitoring the process of drug substitution with respect to equal therapeutic dosages is therefore a necessity, especially in vulnerable patients.
