Diltiazem Hcl Er Coated Beads

Drug Info for diltiazem hcl er coated beads

Diltiazem is used to treat high blood pressure and to control angina (chest pain). Diltiazem is in a class of medications called calcium-channel blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard. It also increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. High blood pressure is a common condition, and when not treated it can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.

Cartia XT is a calcium channel blocker that is used to treat chest pains and high blood pressure. It relaxes the muscles of your heart and blood vessels so the heart has less work to do and blood can flow easily. It also decreases the heart rate and lowers blood pressure. Cartia XT is available to adults as a 12-hour capsule.
