Uses
Cardizem CD (Diltiazem) is used for a number of purposes. Doctors prescribe it for treating hypertension (more commonly known as high blood pressure) and for the prevention of chest pain. Regular use can help to reduce chest pain episodes in patients suffering from angina, and can also help to prevent medical complications in patients suffering from high blood pressure. Another use for this drug is controlling the heart rate in those who are affected by atrial fibrillation. The active ingredient in this drug is a type of calcium channel blocker, and it works by relaxing the blood vessels, thereby allowing the blood to flow more easily. It can also reduce the heart rate.

These capsules need to be swallowed whole with a full glass of water, and must not be chewed or crushed. Generally, patients are told to take this medication once per day before breakfast. If you are taking this drug to treat high blood pressure, it is worth noting that it can take 2 weeks of treatment before the full benefits are noticed. Consult your doctor if your condition becomes worse.
