What happens when a doctor prescribes cardizem to a 62 yr old man with normal blood pressure?
Had heart attack caused by cardizem Asked by Allyson Rial 2 years ago.

Brand name: Cardizem Pronounced: CAR-di-zem Generic name: Diltiazem hydrochloride Other brand names: Cardizem CD, Cardizem SR, Dilacor XR, Tiazac Why is this drug prescribed? Cardizem and Cardizem CD (a controlled release form of diltiazem) are used in the treatment of angina pectoris (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries) and chronic stable angina (caused by exertion). Cardizem CD is also used to treat high blood pressure. Another controlled release form, Cardizem SR, is used only in the treatment of high blood pressure. Cardizem, a calcium channel blocker, dilates blood vessels and slows the heart to reduce blood pressure and the pain of angina. Doctors sometimes prescribe Cardizem for loss of circulation in the fingers and toes (Raynaud's phenomenon), for involuntary movements (tardive dyskinesia), and to prevent heart attack. Tiazac and Dilacor XR are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and chronic stable angina. They may be taken alone or combined with other blood pressure medications. What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Cardizem. •More common side effects may include: Abnormally slow heartbeat (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), dizziness, fluid retention, flushing (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), headache, nausea, rash, weakness •Less common or rare side effects may include: Abnormal dreams, allergic reaction, altered way of walking, amnesia, anemia, angina (severe chest pain), blood disorders, congestive heart failure, constipation, cough, depression, diarrhea, difficulty sleeping, drowsiness, dry mouth, excessive urination at night, eye irritation, fainting, flu symptoms, hair loss, hallucinations, heart attack, high blood sugar, hives, impotence, increased output of pale urine, indigestion, infection, irregular heartbeat, itching, joint pain, labored breathing, loss of appetite, low blood pressure, low blood sugar, muscle cramps, nasal congestion or inflammation, nervousness, nosebleed, pain, personality change, pounding heartbeat, rapid heartbeat, reddish or purplish spots on skin, ringing in ears, sexual difficulties, skin inflammation/flaking or peeling, sensitivity to light, sleepiness, sore throat, taste alteration, thirst, tingling or pins and needles, tremor, vision changes, vomiting, welts, weight increase Answered by Gema Rivenbark 2 years ago.

The American Heart Association set new guidelines for normal B/P ranges and 120/90 is too high. They want to see an average pressure of 117/68. So, your B/P of 120/90 is too high and 100/50 is okay. Please remember that B/P fluctuates throughout the day and night and throughout your lifetime. B/Ps are typically lower in the morning and higher in the late afternoon/early evening. And the average B/P for a healthy 5-year-old is very different from that of a healthy 15-year-old and a healthy 75-year-old. B/P is affected by stress. Stress comes in many forms. Even Illness, strong emotions and obesity are forms of stress on the body. Pretty much everything is a form of stress. And stress can, at times, be a good thing. So "stress" is a general, catch-all word. Yes, of course you experience stress whether or not you know it when you see it. An isolated reading of 120/90 may not be significant. High or low blood pressure is generally determined by what the values are consistently. Spot checks won't establish a baseline unless done in a specific way. Check your B/P with the same equipment on 3 different days and at 3 different times of day (Morning, mid day and night). You'll get a much better idea of what your baseline B/P is and how it rates according to the AHA. Answered by Catherina Nanni 2 years ago.

High blood pressure is not the only reason Cardizem can be prescribed. It does have other uses. Who told you Cardizem caused the heart attack? I have never heard of that. Answered by Chauncey Fendlason 2 years ago.


What are the differences between Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and Diltiazem HCL SA?
Asked by Keli Rajan 2 years ago.

Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and diltiazem HCl SA are essentially the same thing. They are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (cardiac chest pressure) and certain cardiac irregularities. Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), is the generic name for the drug. One company sells it as Cardizem CD, another as Cardizem LA. There is also a formulation callled Cardizem SR. Diltiazem is a three time a day medication unless it is formulated to be released slowly over 24 hours. When this is the case, it is once daily and bears the CD, LA, SR or SA designation. These stand for phrases like long-acting and slow release. Technically, there may be trivial distinctions between the different slow release mechanisms, but from a practical standpoint, they should be considered identical.

Cardizem Cd Answered by Willette Gulnick 2 years ago.

Cardizem La Answered by Jacob Aulds 2 years ago.

A flirt is someone who will talk nasty to you, give you sexual looks and give the occasional long hug. a tease is someone who shows skin, more of a look but don't touch kind of deal. Get you in a room start messing around, then make some excuse of why they can't go any further. I prefer the flirt over the tease!! Answered by Sharita Heffner 2 years ago.


Anyone take cardizem for fast heart rate?
anyone take cardizem for fast heart rate with low b/p? did it work.? tell me your story and how you got well?the skipping and fast is soooooooo scary?wonder how fast it can beat with out stopping? Asked by Lane Kvam 2 years ago.

I took Cardizem 360 for two years and was okay with it to keep my blood pressure down. My resting heart rate is normally 60 and would drop into 50's with this med. I have episodes of Atrial Fib so I know what you mean about scary. As far as my meager mind knows; rapid heart rate is common and cardizem is one way Dr's. keep the episodes less frequent. Lastly, I found that eating cantaloupe, oranges and bananas for Potassium. Nuts for Magnesium and Yogurt for Calcium along with taking a mineral supplement reduces the likelihood of arrhythmia's.

Cardizem, which is in the calcium channel blocker group, effects the heart by blocking some of the electrical impulses.For this reason it is not used to slow down the heart rate although as pointed out this is one of its effects.It is normally used as second/third tier (add on) blood pressure med.The drug of choice to slow down heart rate is a beta-blocker such as atenolol, metoprolol, or propranolol which work far more reliably by blocking some of the effects of adrenaline always present in blood stream.

Early this morning about 1:30am I experienced chest pains and had to use nitro for the first time in a long time. Last night I took Biaxin and Cardizem before going to bed. I know that there is a drug interaction with these two drugs. Could my early morning chest pains be the result of the drug interaction? I suffered a heart attack followed by an emergency bypass in 2001. I continued to have problems with chest pain and had 3 stents put in. About 2 or 3 years ago a new cardiologist discovered that I had actually been suffering with spasms of the arteries most likely brought on by ibuprofen and probably didn’t need the stents that had already been inserted. With med changes all my problems seem to resolve. So now I'm wondering if I'm having a relapse of my previous condition, something worse or a drug interaction. Unfortunately, I can't afford medical treatment until I've reached my deductible because my husband and I are losing our home and most everything else and will have to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Answered by Craig Eichenauer 2 years ago.

It is likely that you experienced side effects of Biaxin (clarithromycin). Coadministration with Cardizem (diltiazem) may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. The mechanism is decreased clearance due to inhibition of CYP450 3A4 activity by diltiazem. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if diltiazem must be used concomitantly with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 3A4 (such as clarithromycin). Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever diltiazem is added to or withdrawn from therapy. According to the mechanism explained above the levels of clarithromycin would be higher than expected in your system and therefore you experience it's side effects more. Side effects of clarithromycin are listed below. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: uneven heartbeats, chest pain, shortness of breath; diarrhea that is watery or bloody; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; or problems with your hearing. Less serious side effects may include: mild stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach; unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth; tooth discoloration; dizziness, headache, anxiety, confusion; skin rash; or vaginal itching or discharge. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. I would advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Why is amiodarone better than cardizem for treatment of atrial fibrillation?

Cardizem is generally good for controlling the rate of AFib. Not so good for rhythm control. Amio does a good job of both. But it's got a down side that it has a LOT of side effects & interactions. Answered by Margo Mcfee 2 years ago.

amiodarone is a powerful drug and its often given to people if the doctor is considering cardioversion (electric shock to the heart to put it back into normal rhythm).

Warning about Cardizem: This drug was given a pregnancy Category C rating because of potential problems in animal studies.

However, it is important to note that animals do not always respond to medicines the same way that humans do. Therefore, a pregnancy Category C medicine may be given to a pregnant woman if her healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the woman outweigh any possible risks to the unborn child.

No if your doctor prescribed it you should be taking it. Cardizem generic name Diltiazam, is a medication commonly prescribed to patient's with Atrial fibrillation with rapid venticular response. Most likely the reason your b/p is low even though your heart rate is fast is because your heart is beating so fast that the heart does not have time to fill up with blood. By slowing the heart's rate down it will increase ventricular filling time and thus cause your b/p to go back up. Good luck and feel better soon! PS. Trust your doctor!

One day I started to feel really faint while I was driving with my daughter in the back seat and I passed out, hitting 3 cars and ending up in a ditch. That moment,I knew I had to do something because my meds weren't working. I heard about this diet from a friend and thought I'd give it a shot. The results have been remarkable.

Just don't drive your car after the first dose, or have a family member stay with you for a few hours for your first dose, to make sure you don't get lightheaded. Cardizem is often prescribed for fast heart rate, and it is often given to people with normal to low blood pressure. The motto is "start low, go slow" so I am assuming you got a "starter" dose. Make note of how you feel with it, if you are worried, go to the drugstore to get the blood pressure machine to read your pressure after you take the medicine. It is possible that a slower heart rate will make your pressure go UP, because too rapid might not give you enough blood in each heartbeat to pump around...

What happens when a doctor prescribes cardizem to a 62 yr old man with normal blood pressure?
Had heart attack caused by cardizem Asked by Kara Hoyt 2 years ago.

Brand name: Cardizem Pronounced: CAR-di-zem Generic name: Diltiazem hydrochloride Other brand names: Cardizem CD, Cardizem SR, Dilacor XR, Tiazac Why is this drug prescribed? Cardizem and Cardizem CD (a controlled release form of diltiazem) are used in the treatment of angina pectoris (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries) and chronic stable angina (caused by exertion). Cardizem CD is also used to treat high blood pressure. Another controlled release form, Cardizem SR, is used only in the treatment of high blood pressure. Cardizem, a calcium channel blocker, dilates blood vessels and slows the heart to reduce blood pressure and the pain of angina. Doctors sometimes prescribe Cardizem for loss of circulation in the fingers and toes (Raynaud's phenomenon), for involuntary movements (tardive dyskinesia), and to prevent heart attack. Tiazac and Dilacor XR are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and chronic stable angina. They may be taken alone or combined with other blood pressure medications. What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Cardizem. •More common side effects may include: Abnormally slow heartbeat (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), dizziness, fluid retention, flushing (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), headache, nausea, rash, weakness •Less common or rare side effects may include: Abnormal dreams, allergic reaction, altered way of walking, amnesia, anemia, angina (severe chest pain), blood disorders, congestive heart failure, constipation, cough, depression, diarrhea, difficulty sleeping, drowsiness, dry mouth, excessive urination at night, eye irritation, fainting, flu symptoms, hair loss, hallucinations, heart attack, high blood sugar, hives, impotence, increased output of pale urine, indigestion, infection, irregular heartbeat, itching, joint pain, labored breathing, loss of appetite, low blood pressure, low blood sugar, muscle cramps, nasal congestion or inflammation, nervousness, nosebleed, pain, personality change, pounding heartbeat, rapid heartbeat, reddish or purplish spots on skin, ringing in ears, sexual difficulties, skin inflammation/flaking or peeling, sensitivity to light, sleepiness, sore throat, taste alteration, thirst, tingling or pins and needles, tremor, vision changes, vomiting, welts, weight increase Answered by Adina Lucario 2 years ago.

The American Heart Association set new guidelines for normal B/P ranges and 120/90 is too high. They want to see an average pressure of 117/68. So, your B/P of 120/90 is too high and 100/50 is okay. Please remember that B/P fluctuates throughout the day and night and throughout your lifetime. B/Ps are typically lower in the morning and higher in the late afternoon/early evening. And the average B/P for a healthy 5-year-old is very different from that of a healthy 15-year-old and a healthy 75-year-old. B/P is affected by stress. Stress comes in many forms. Even Illness, strong emotions and obesity are forms of stress on the body. Pretty much everything is a form of stress. And stress can, at times, be a good thing. So "stress" is a general, catch-all word. Yes, of course you experience stress whether or not you know it when you see it. An isolated reading of 120/90 may not be significant. High or low blood pressure is generally determined by what the values are consistently. Spot checks won't establish a baseline unless done in a specific way. Check your B/P with the same equipment on 3 different days and at 3 different times of day (Morning, mid day and night). You'll get a much better idea of what your baseline B/P is and how it rates according to the AHA. Answered by Bronwyn Huffner 2 years ago.

What are the differences between Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and Diltiazem HCL SA?
Asked by Jeremiah Niedermeyer 2 years ago.

Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and diltiazem HCl SA are essentially the same thing. They are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (cardiac chest pressure) and certain cardiac irregularities. Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), is the generic name for the drug. One company sells it as Cardizem CD, another as Cardizem LA. There is also a formulation callled Cardizem SR. Diltiazem is a three time a day medication unless it is formulated to be released slowly over 24 hours. When this is the case, it is once daily and bears the CD, LA, SR or SA designation. These stand for phrases like long-acting and slow release. Technically, there may be trivial distinctions between the different slow release mechanisms, but from a practical standpoint, they should be considered identical.

The American Heart Association set new guidelines for normal B/P ranges and 120/90 is too high. They want to see an average pressure of 117/68. So, your B/P of 120/90 is too high and 100/50 is okay. Please remember that B/P fluctuates throughout the day and night and throughout your lifetime. B/Ps are typically lower in the morning and higher in the late afternoon/early evening. And the average B/P for a healthy 5-year-old is very different from that of a healthy 15-year-old and a healthy 75-year-old. B/P is affected by stress. Stress comes in many forms. Even Illness, strong emotions and obesity are forms of stress on the body. Pretty much everything is a form of stress. And stress can, at times, be a good thing. So "stress" is a general, catch-all word. Yes, of course you experience stress whether or not you know it when you see it. An isolated reading of 120/90 may not be significant. High or low blood pressure is generally determined by what the values are consistently. Spot checks won't establish a baseline unless done in a specific way. Check your B/P with the same equipment on 3 different days and at 3 different times of day (Morning, mid day and night). You'll get a much better idea of what your baseline B/P is and how it rates according to the AHA. Answered by Ofelia Phinisee 2 years ago.

What are the differences between Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and Diltiazem HCL SA?
Asked by Chana Vitrano 2 years ago.

Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and diltiazem HCl SA are essentially the same thing. They are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (cardiac chest pressure) and certain cardiac irregularities. Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), is the generic name for the drug. One company sells it as Cardizem CD, another as Cardizem LA. There is also a formulation callled Cardizem SR. Diltiazem is a three time a day medication unless it is formulated to be released slowly over 24 hours. When this is the case, it is once daily and bears the CD, LA, SR or SA designation. These stand for phrases like long-acting and slow release. Technically, there may be trivial distinctions between the different slow release mechanisms, but from a practical standpoint, they should be considered identical.

Cardizem, which is in the calcium channel blocker group, effects the heart by blocking some of the electrical impulses.For this reason it is not used to slow down the heart rate although as pointed out this is one of its effects.It is normally used as second/third tier (add on) blood pressure med.The drug of choice to slow down heart rate is a beta-blocker such as atenolol, metoprolol, or propranolol which work far more reliably by blocking some of the effects of adrenaline always present in blood stream.

Early this morning about 1:30am I experienced chest pains and had to use nitro for the first time in a long time. Last night I took Biaxin and Cardizem before going to bed. I know that there is a drug interaction with these two drugs. Could my early morning chest pains be the result of the drug interaction? I suffered a heart attack followed by an emergency bypass in 2001. I continued to have problems with chest pain and had 3 stents put in. About 2 or 3 years ago a new cardiologist discovered that I had actually been suffering with spasms of the arteries most likely brought on by ibuprofen and probably didn’t need the stents that had already been inserted. With med changes all my problems seem to resolve. So now I'm wondering if I'm having a relapse of my previous condition, something worse or a drug interaction. Unfortunately, I can't afford medical treatment until I've reached my deductible because my husband and I are losing our home and most everything else and will have to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Answered by Tricia Ivan 2 years ago.

It is likely that you experienced side effects of Biaxin (clarithromycin). Coadministration with Cardizem (diltiazem) may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. The mechanism is decreased clearance due to inhibition of CYP450 3A4 activity by diltiazem. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if diltiazem must be used concomitantly with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 3A4 (such as clarithromycin). Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever diltiazem is added to or withdrawn from therapy. According to the mechanism explained above the levels of clarithromycin would be higher than expected in your system and therefore you experience it's side effects more. Side effects of clarithromycin are listed below. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: uneven heartbeats, chest pain, shortness of breath; diarrhea that is watery or bloody; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; or problems with your hearing. Less serious side effects may include: mild stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach; unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth; tooth discoloration; dizziness, headache, anxiety, confusion; skin rash; or vaginal itching or discharge. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. I would advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

No if your doctor prescribed it you should be taking it. Cardizem generic name Diltiazam, is a medication commonly prescribed to patient's with Atrial fibrillation with rapid venticular response. Most likely the reason your b/p is low even though your heart rate is fast is because your heart is beating so fast that the heart does not have time to fill up with blood. By slowing the heart's rate down it will increase ventricular filling time and thus cause your b/p to go back up. Good luck and feel better soon! PS. Trust your doctor!

3 years ago, I was diagnosed - hypertension with a reading of 160/100. I used to feel dizzy a lot, my legs had awful cramps, and levels were very low in my potassium, causing my fingers and toes to always cramp together. One day I started to feel really faint while I was driving with my daughter in the back seat and I passed out, hitting 3 cars and ending up in a ditch. That moment,I knew I had to do something because my meds weren't working. I heard about this diet from a friend and thought I'd give it a shot. The results have been remarkable. In just 21 days, I honestly can't remember feeling this good, my blood pressure went from 175/110 to 125/70. Answered by Isaiah Oshita 2 years ago.

Just don't drive your car after the first dose, or have a family member stay with you for a few hours for your first dose, to make sure you don't get lightheaded. Cardizem is often prescribed for fast heart rate, and it is often given to people with normal to low blood pressure. The motto is "start low, go slow" so I am assuming you got a "starter" dose. Make note of how you feel with it, if you are worried, go to the drugstore to get the blood pressure machine to read your pressure after you take the medicine. It is possible that a slower heart rate will make your pressure go UP, because too rapid might not give you enough blood in each heartbeat to pump around... But, it is smart to ask, and smart to keep track of how you are doing and be aware. Answered by Jerrold Mehler 2 years ago.

Brand name: Cardizem Pronounced: CAR-di-zem Generic name: Diltiazem hydrochloride Other brand names: Cardizem CD, Cardizem SR, Dilacor XR, Tiazac Why is this drug prescribed? Cardizem and Cardizem CD (a controlled release form of diltiazem) are used in the treatment of angina pectoris (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries) and chronic stable angina (caused by exertion). Cardizem CD is also used to treat high blood pressure. Another controlled release form, Cardizem SR, is used only in the treatment of high blood pressure. Cardizem, a calcium channel blocker, dilates blood vessels and slows the heart to reduce blood pressure and the pain of angina.

Tiazac and Dilacor XR are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and chronic stable angina. They may be taken alone or combined with other blood pressure medications.

Does anyone take cardizem for fast heart rate?
does anyone take cadizem for fast heart rate or other medcations? do you have low blood preasure? why would they give me this with low blood presure? Asked by Marin Geerken 2 years ago.

I prescribe Cardizem quite often, and yes...sometimes for a fast heart rate. If you have "low blood pressure," then be sure to monitor it. At lower doses, Cardizem will mostly effect the heart rate, but not impact the blood pressure as much. I typically use a different medication for this called "Toprol XL." It is referred to as a beta-blocker. Good luck. Answered by Tony Muskus 2 years ago.

No if your doctor prescribed it you should be taking it. Cardizem generic name Diltiazam, is a medication commonly prescribed to patient's with Atrial fibrillation with rapid venticular response. Most likely the reason your b/p is low even though your heart rate is fast is because your heart is beating so fast that the heart does not have time to fill up with blood. By slowing the heart's rate down it will increase ventricular filling time and thus cause your b/p to go back up. Good luck and feel better soon! PS. Trust your doctor! He/she would not of prescibed you a medication that could harm you. Answered by Luciano Deroos 2 years ago.

3 years ago, I was diagnosed - hypertension with a reading of 160/100. I used to feel dizzy a lot, my legs had awful cramps, and levels were very low in my potassium, causing my fingers and toes to always cramp together. One day I started to feel really faint while I was driving with my daughter in the back seat and I passed out, hitting 3 cars and ending up in a ditch. That moment,I knew I had to do something because my meds weren't working. I heard about this diet from a friend and thought I'd give it a shot. The results have been remarkable. In just 21 days, I honestly can't remember feeling this good, my blood pressure went from 175/110 to 125/70. Answered by Denese Millett 2 years ago.

Just don't drive your car after the first dose, or have a family member stay with you for a few hours for your first dose, to make sure you don't get lightheaded. Cardizem is often prescribed for fast heart rate, and it is often given to people with normal to low blood pressure. The motto is "start low, go slow" so I am assuming you got a "starter" dose. Make note of how you feel with it, if you are worried, go to the drugstore to get the blood pressure machine to read your pressure after you take the medicine. It is possible that a slower heart rate will make your pressure go UP, because too rapid might not give you enough blood in each heartbeat to pump around... But, it is smart to ask, and smart to keep track of how you are doing and be aware. Answered by Dovie Bausley 2 years ago.

What happens when a doctor prescribes cardizem to a 62 yr old man with normal blood pressure?
Had heart attack caused by cardizem Asked by Ingrid Montford 2 years ago.

Brand name: Cardizem Pronounced: CAR-di-zem Generic name: Diltiazem hydrochloride Other brand names: Cardizem CD, Cardizem SR, Dilacor XR, Tiazac Why is this drug prescribed? Cardizem and Cardizem CD (a controlled release form of diltiazem) are used in the treatment of angina pectoris (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries) and chronic stable angina (caused by exertion). Cardizem CD is also used to treat high blood pressure. Another controlled release form, Cardizem SR, is used only in the treatment of high blood pressure. Cardizem, a calcium channel blocker, dilates blood vessels and slows the heart to reduce blood pressure and the pain of angina. Doctors sometimes prescribe Cardizem for loss of circulation in the fingers and toes (Raynaud's phenomenon), for involuntary movements (tardive dyskinesia), and to prevent heart attack. Tiazac and Dilacor XR are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and chronic stable angina. They may be taken alone or combined with other blood pressure medications. What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Cardizem. •More common side effects may include: Abnormally slow heartbeat (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), dizziness, fluid retention, flushing (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), headache, nausea, rash, weakness •Less common or rare side effects may include: Abnormal dreams, allergic reaction, altered way of walking, amnesia, anemia, angina (severe chest pain), blood disorders, congestive heart failure, constipation, cough, depression, diarrhea, difficulty sleeping, drowsiness, dry mouth, excessive urination at night, eye irritation, fainting, flu symptoms, hair loss, hallucinations, heart attack, high blood sugar, hives, impotence, increased output of pale urine, indigestion, infection, irregular heartbeat, itching, joint pain, labored breathing, loss of appetite, low blood pressure, low blood sugar, muscle cramps, nasal congestion or inflammation, nervousness, nosebleed, pain, personality change, pounding heartbeat, rapid heartbeat, reddish or purplish spots on skin, ringing in ears, sexual difficulties, skin inflammation/flaking or peeling, sensitivity to light, sleepiness, sore throat, taste alteration, thirst, tingling or pins and needles, tremor, vision changes, vomiting, welts, weight increase Answered by Kristine Kempfer 2 years ago.

The American Heart Association set new guidelines for normal B/P ranges and 120/90 is too high. They want to see an average pressure of 117/68. So, your B/P of 120/90 is too high and 100/50 is okay. Please remember that B/P fluctuates throughout the day and night and throughout your lifetime. B/Ps are typically lower in the morning and higher in the late afternoon/early evening. And the average B/P for a healthy 5-year-old is very different from that of a healthy 15-year-old and a healthy 75-year-old. B/P is affected by stress. Stress comes in many forms. Even Illness, strong emotions and obesity are forms of stress on the body. Pretty much everything is a form of stress. And stress can, at times, be a good thing. So "stress" is a general, catch-all word. Yes, of course you experience stress whether or not you know it when you see it. An isolated reading of 120/90 may not be significant. High or low blood pressure is generally determined by what the values are consistently. Spot checks won't establish a baseline unless done in a specific way. Check your B/P with the same equipment on 3 different days and at 3 different times of day (Morning, mid day and night). You'll get a much better idea of what your baseline B/P is and how it rates according to the AHA. Answered by Jong Warran 2 years ago.

What are the differences between Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and Diltiazem HCL SA?
Asked by Jerica Mantooth 2 years ago.

Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and diltiazem HCl SA are essentially the same thing. They are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (cardiac chest pressure) and certain cardiac irregularities. Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), is the generic name for the drug. One company sells it as Cardizem CD, another as Cardizem LA. There is also a formulation callled Cardizem SR. Diltiazem is a three time a day medication unless it is formulated to be released slowly over 24 hours. When this is the case, it is once daily and bears the CD, LA, SR or SA designation. These stand for phrases like long-acting and slow release. Technically, there may be trivial distinctions between the different slow release mechanisms, but from a practical standpoint, they should be considered identical.

Early this morning about 1:30am I experienced chest pains and had to use nitro for the first time in a long time. Last night I took Biaxin and Cardizem before going to bed. I know that there is a drug interaction with these two drugs. Could my early morning chest pains be the result of the drug interaction? I suffered a heart attack followed by an emergency bypass in 2001. I continued to have problems with chest pain and had 3 stents put in. About 2 or 3 years ago a new cardiologist discovered that I had actually been suffering with spasms of the arteries most likely brought on by ibuprofen and probably didn’t need the stents that had already been inserted. With med changes all my problems seem to resolve. So now I'm wondering if I'm having a relapse of my previous condition, something worse or a drug interaction. Unfortunately, I can't afford medical treatment until I've reached my deductible because my husband and I are losing our home and most everything else and will have to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Answered by Robbi Perryman 2 years ago.

It is likely that you experienced side effects of Biaxin (clarithromycin). Coadministration with Cardizem (diltiazem) may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. The mechanism is decreased clearance due to inhibition of CYP450 3A4 activity by diltiazem. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if diltiazem must be used concomitantly with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 3A4 (such as clarithromycin). Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever diltiazem is added to or withdrawn from therapy. According to the mechanism explained above the levels of clarithromycin would be higher than expected in your system and therefore you experience it's side effects more. Side effects of clarithromycin are listed below. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: uneven heartbeats, chest pain, shortness of breath; diarrhea that is watery or bloody; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; or problems with your hearing. Less serious side effects may include: mild stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach; unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth; tooth discoloration; dizziness, headache, anxiety, confusion; skin rash; or vaginal itching or discharge. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. I would advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Warning about Cardizem: This drug was given a pregnancy Category C rating because of potential problems in animal studies.

However, it is important to note that animals do not always respond to medicines the same way that humans do. Therefore, a pregnancy Category C medicine may be given to a pregnant woman if her healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the woman outweigh any possible risks to the unborn child.

I know that there is a drug interaction with these two drugs. Could my early morning chest pains be the result of the drug interaction? I suffered a heart attack followed by an emergency bypass in 2001. I continued to have problems with chest pain and had 3 stents put in. About 2 or 3 years ago a new cardiologist discovered that I had actually been suffering with spasms of the arteries most likely brought on by ibuprofen and probably didn’t need the stents that had already been inserted. With med changes all my problems seem to resolve. So now I'm wondering if I'm having a relapse of my previous condition, something worse or a drug interaction. Unfortunately, I can't afford medical treatment until I've reached my deductible because my husband and I are losing our home and most everything else and will have to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Answered by Colleen Wever 2 years ago.

It is likely that you experienced side effects of Biaxin (clarithromycin). Coadministration with Cardizem (diltiazem) may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are substrates of the CYP450 3A4 isoenzyme. The mechanism is decreased clearance due to inhibition of CYP450 3A4 activity by diltiazem. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if diltiazem must be used concomitantly with medications that undergo metabolism by CYP450 3A4 (such as clarithromycin). Dosage adjustments as well as clinical and laboratory monitoring may be appropriate for some drugs whenever diltiazem is added to or withdrawn from therapy. According to the mechanism explained above the levels of clarithromycin would be higher than expected in your system and therefore you experience it's side effects more. Side effects of clarithromycin are listed below. Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: uneven heartbeats, chest pain, shortness of breath; diarrhea that is watery or bloody; nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; or problems with your hearing. Less serious side effects may include: mild stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach; unusual or unpleasant taste in your mouth; tooth discoloration; dizziness, headache, anxiety, confusion; skin rash; or vaginal itching or discharge. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect. I would advise you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Why is amiodarone better than cardizem for treatment of atrial fibrillation?
Asked by Hilda Gartman 2 years ago.

Cardizem is generally good for controlling the rate of AFib. Not so good for rhythm control. Amio does a good job of both. But it's got a down side that it has a LOT of side effects & interactions. Answered by Rodrigo Mertel 2 years ago.

amiodarone is a powerful drug and its often given to people if the doctor is considering cardioversion (electric shock to the heart to put it back into normal rhythm). Research suggests that the heart responds better if amiodarone has been taken. Its not without side effects so read the information leaflet carefully especially sun protection Answered by Magdalene Baylock 2 years ago.

Warning about Cardizem: This drug was given a pregnancy Category C rating because of potential problems in animal studies. When given to pregnant rabbits, mice, and rats, the drug caused increased miscarriages and birth defects (especially skeletal problems). However, it is important to note that animals do not always respond to medicines the same way that humans do. Therefore, a pregnancy Category C medicine may be given to a pregnant woman if her healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the woman outweigh any possible risks to the unborn child.

I prescribe Cardizem quite often, and yes...sometimes for a fast heart rate. If you have "low blood pressure," then be sure to monitor it. At lower doses, Cardizem will mostly effect the heart rate, but not impact the blood pressure as much. I typically use a different medication for this called "Toprol XL."

No if your doctor prescribed it you should be taking it. Cardizem generic name Diltiazam, is a medication commonly prescribed to patient's with Atrial fibrillation with rapid venticular response. Most likely the reason your b/p is low even though your heart rate is fast is because your heart is beating so fast that the heart does not have time to fill up with blood. By slowing the heart's rate down it will increase ventricular filling time and thus cause your b/p to go back up. Good luck and feel better soon! PS. Trust your doctor! He/she would not of prescibed you a medication that could harm you. Answered by Kathyrn Aiudi 2 years ago.

3 years ago, I was diagnosed - hypertension with a reading of 160/100. I used to feel dizzy a lot, my legs had awful cramps, and levels were very low in my potassium, causing my fingers and toes to always cramp together. One day I started to feel really faint while I was driving with my daughter in the back seat and I passed out, hitting 3 cars and ending up in a ditch. That moment,I knew I had to do something because my meds weren't working. I heard about this diet from a friend and thought I'd give it a shot. The results have been remarkable. In just 21 days, I honestly can't remember feeling this good, my blood pressure went from 175/110 to 125/70. Answered by Hortensia Henninger 2 years ago.

Just don't drive your car after the first dose, or have a family member stay with you for a few hours for your first dose, to make sure you don't get lightheaded. Cardizem is often prescribed for fast heart rate, and it is often given to people with normal to low blood pressure. The motto is "start low, go slow" so I am assuming you got a "starter" dose. Make note of how you feel with it, if you are worried, go to the drugstore to get the blood pressure machine to read your pressure after you take the medicine. It is possible that a slower heart rate will make your pressure go UP, because too rapid might not give you enough blood in each heartbeat to pump around... But, it is smart to ask, and smart to keep track of how you are doing and be aware. Answered by Tomika Biddle 2 years ago.

What happens when a doctor prescribes cardizem to a 62 yr old man with normal blood pressure?
Had heart attack caused by cardizem Asked by Christiana Vandeyacht 2 years ago.

Brand name: Cardizem Pronounced: CAR-di-zem Generic name: Diltiazem hydrochloride Other brand names: Cardizem CD, Cardizem SR, Dilacor XR, Tiazac Why is this drug prescribed? Cardizem and Cardizem CD (a controlled release form of diltiazem) are used in the treatment of angina pectoris (chest pain usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries) and chronic stable angina (caused by exertion). Cardizem CD is also used to treat high blood pressure. Another controlled release form, Cardizem SR, is used only in the treatment of high blood pressure. Cardizem, a calcium channel blocker, dilates blood vessels and slows the heart to reduce blood pressure and the pain of angina. Doctors sometimes prescribe Cardizem for loss of circulation in the fingers and toes (Raynaud's phenomenon), for involuntary movements (tardive dyskinesia), and to prevent heart attack. Tiazac and Dilacor XR are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and chronic stable angina. They may be taken alone or combined with other blood pressure medications. What side effects may occur? Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Cardizem. •More common side effects may include: Abnormally slow heartbeat (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), dizziness, fluid retention, flushing (more common with Cardizem SR and Cardizem CD), headache, nausea, rash, weakness •Less common or rare side effects may include: Abnormal dreams, allergic reaction, altered way of walking, amnesia, anemia, angina (severe chest pain), blood disorders, congestive heart failure, constipation, cough, depression, diarrhea, difficulty sleeping, drowsiness, dry mouth, excessive urination at night, eye irritation, fainting, flu symptoms, hair loss, hallucinations, heart attack, high blood sugar, hives, impotence, increased output of pale urine, indigestion, infection, irregular heartbeat, itching, joint pain, labored breathing, loss of appetite, low blood pressure, low blood sugar, muscle cramps, nasal congestion or inflammation, nervousness, nosebleed, pain, personality change, pounding heartbeat, rapid heartbeat, reddish or purplish spots on skin, ringing in ears, sexual difficulties, skin inflammation/flaking or peeling, sensitivity to light, sleepiness, sore throat, taste alteration, thirst, tingling or pins and needles, tremor, vision changes, vomiting, welts, weight increase Answered by Loyce Sopko 2 years ago.

The American Heart Association set new guidelines for normal B/P ranges and 120/90 is too high. They want to see an average pressure of 117/68. So, your B/P of 120/90 is too high and 100/50 is okay. Please remember that B/P fluctuates throughout the day and night and throughout your lifetime. B/Ps are typically lower in the morning and higher in the late afternoon/early evening. And the average B/P for a healthy 5-year-old is very different from that of a healthy 15-year-old and a healthy 75-year-old. B/P is affected by stress. Stress comes in many forms. Even Illness, strong emotions and obesity are forms of stress on the body. Pretty much everything is a form of stress. And stress can, at times, be a good thing. So "stress" is a general, catch-all word. Yes, of course you experience stress whether or not you know it when you see it. An isolated reading of 120/90 may not be significant. High or low blood pressure is generally determined by what the values are consistently. Spot checks won't establish a baseline unless done in a specific way. Check your B/P with the same equipment on 3 different days and at 3 different times of day (Morning, mid day and night). You'll get a much better idea of what your baseline B/P is and how it rates according to the AHA. Answered by Leeanne Lisa 2 years ago.

What are the differences between Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and Diltiazem HCL SA?
Asked by Liza Lokhmatov 2 years ago.

Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and diltiazem HCl SA are essentially the same thing. They are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (cardiac chest pressure) and certain cardiac irregularities. Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), is the generic name for the drug. One company sells it as Cardizem CD, another as Cardizem LA. There is also a formulation callled Cardizem SR. Diltiazem is a three time a day medication unless it is formulated to be released slowly over 24 hours. When this is the case, it is once daily and bears the CD, LA, SR or SA designation. These stand for phrases like long-acting and slow release. Technically, there may be trivial distinctions between the different slow release mechanisms, but from a practical standpoint, they should be considered identical.

I took Cardizem 360 for two years and was okay with it to keep my blood pressure down. My resting heart rate is normally 60 and would drop into 50's with this med. I have episodes of Atrial Fib so I know what you mean about scary. As far as my meager mind knows; rapid heart rate is common and cardizem is one way Dr's. keep the episodes less frequent.

Answered by Jamaal Caberto 2 years ago.

Cardizem, which is in the calcium channel blocker group, effects the heart by blocking some of the electrical impulses.For this reason it is not used to slow down the heart rate although as pointed out this is one of its effects.It is normally used as second/third tier (add on) blood pressure med.The drug of choice to slow down heart rate is a beta-blocker such as atenolol, metoprolol, or propranolol which work far more reliably by blocking some of the effects of adrenaline always present in blood stream.
