Calcium Channel Blockers in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted May 27, 2008 I am not a doctor, Alice, but I believe that Barefut is right in saying that calcium channel blockers are not generally prescribed for calcinosis. On our Calcinosis page it says: Calcinosis in rheumatic diseases. While warfarin, colchicine, probenecid, bisphosphonates, diltiazem, minocycline, aluminum hydroxide, salicylate, surgical extirpation, and carbon dioxide laser therapies have been used, no treatment has convincingly prevented or reduced calcinosis. However, the approach to calcinosis management is disorganized, beginning with the lack of a generally accepted classification and continuing with a lack of systematic study and clinical therapeutic trials. PubMed. Semin Arthritis rheumatologist. 2005 Jun;34(6):805-12. There are quite a few articles and some interesting pictures on the Calcinosis page. One thing mentioned is that excess calcium is not the cause of calcinosis.
