Drug Drugs causing Gingival Hyperplasia (Enlargement)

Newer textbooks are now calling it Gingival Enlargement to accurately reflect the pathology.
There's a long list of physiological and pathological conditions that cause the gingiva to enlarge but the most commonly asked in the USMLE are drugs.

The most high yield drugs that cause Gingival hyperplasia are:
  • Calcium channel blockers; specifically Nifedipine and Verapamil
  • Anticonvulsants; sepcifically Phenytoin but also others
  • Cyclosporine
