Covera-HS (verapamil hydrochloride) is a calcium ion influx inhibitor (slow-channel
blocker or calcium ion antagonist). Covera-HS is available for oral administration
as pale yellow, round, film-coated tablets containing 240 mg of verapamil hydrochloride
and as lavender, round, film-coated tablets containing 180 mg of verapamil hydrochloride.
Verapamil is administered as a racemic mixture of the R and S enantiomers. The
structural formulae of the verapamil HCl enantiomers are:








Verapamil HCl is an almost white, crystalline powder, practically free of odor,
with a bitter taste. It is soluble in water, chloroform, and methanol. Verapamil
HCl is not chemically related to other cardioactive drugs.
Inactive ingredients are black ferric oxide, BHT, cellulose acetate, hydroxyethyl
cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, magnesium stearate, polyethylene
glycol, polyethylene oxide, polysorbate 80, povidone, sodium chloride, titanium
dioxide, and coloring agents: 240 mg-FD&C Blue No. 2 Lake and D&C Yellow
No. 10 Lake; 180 mg-FD&C Blue No. 2 Lake and D&C Red No. 30 Lake.
System components and performance
The Covera-HS formulation has been designed to initiate the release of verapamil
4-5 hours after ingestion. This delay is introduced by a layer between the active
drug core and outer semipermeable membrane. As water from the gastrointestinal
tract enters the tablet, this delay coating is solubilized and released. As
tablet hydration continues, the osmotic layer expands and pushes against the
drug layer, releasing drug through precision laser-drilled orifices in the outer
membrane at a constant rate. This controlled rate of drug delivery in the gastrointestinal
lumen is independent of posture, pH, gastrointestinal motility, and fed or fasting
conditions.
The biologically inert components of the delivery system remain intact during
GI transit and are eliminated in the feces as an insoluble shell.
