In another study showed that nimodipine with values above 80 mg/kg could inhibit tonic seizures from chemicals including PTZ in mice and rats [3,15], but later showed that high doses of calcium channels blockers cause systemic and cardiac disorders, such as a sharp reduction in coronary blood pressure, decreased movements, imbalance, and headache relief [8,14].
