Diltiazem is a type of medication known as a calcium-channel blocker. It may be used to treat high blood pressure (also known as hypertension), certain types of angina (chest pain), and abnormal heart rhythms such as atrial fibrillation.
Advice & Tips:
the medication works for me at the lowest dose. It lowers my blood pressure, but not too low now. I am able to eat and manage my swallowing and making sure my food goes to my stomach. I can't talk while I eat because I need to pay attention whether or not my food is going down like it is supposed to do.
