hypertension & Chronic Angina only

Cardizem (diltiazem) is a calcium channel blocker. It works by relaxing the muscles of your heart and blood vessels.

Cardizem is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It may be used alone or in combination with other high blood pressure medications.

Cardizem is also used to treat chronic stable angina (chest pain) and angina due to coronary artery spasm.

To make sure Cardizem is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

kidney disease;

liver disease;

congestive heart failure; or

if you also take digoxin, or a beta blocker (such as atenolol, carvedilol, metoprolol, propranolol, sotalol, and others).

Cardizem might be bad for the patient if he has CHF and should take precaution on taking this medicine.
