Angina and high blood pressure Diltiazem Cardizem CD

Uses
Cardizem CD (Diltiazem) is indicated for the control of angina and the treatment of hypertension. It works by affecting the movement of calcium in the body. This medicine is known as a calcium channel blocker, and is sometimes referred to as a calcium antagonist or calcium ion cellular influx inhibitor. When administered, it inhibits the calcium channels which are found in the muscle cells of the heart and blood vessels. This prevents them from contracting, and allows for wider blood vessels and also leads to a slower heart rate.

The reduction of vascular resistance is where this medicine derives its antihypertensive effects, and treatment can lead to a drop in blood pressure. Patients affected by angina may experience an increased ability to exercise, and this could be related to the medicine reducing the heart's demand for oxygen and its workload, as well as its other effects. Medical research has also been conducted to study its effects if used for migraine prophylaxis (prevention).

Dosage and Administration
Cardizem CD (Diltiazem) is provided as 180mg controlled delivery capsules for oral administration. The capsules must be swallowed whole and not crushed, as doing so could affect the extended release mechanism. Your doctor may need to make adjustments to the dosage regimen, so as to achieve the most effective results. Patients taking this medicine on its own (monotherapy) for the treatment of hypertension may be told by their doctor to begin with a dosage ranging from 180mg to 240mg per day, however, it is possible that some people may be treated with a lower dosage. After 14 days, the maximum effects are normally achieved. Some conditions may be treated with a different dosage.
