Abstract

Procardia XL Extended Release Tablets are being used with increasing frequency in the treatment of angina and hypertension. Bezoar formation, secondary to retained insoluble medication shells, is an important but less well-known complication. We report the first case of a small bowel bezoar due to this unique medication system.
