Cardizem



USES: Diltiazem is a calcium channel blocker. Calcium is involved in blood vessel contraction and in controlling the electrical impulses within the heart. By blocking calcium, diltiazem relaxes and widens blood vessels and can normalize heart rates. Diltiazem injection is used to treat irregular heartbeats. This medication may also be used for chest pain (angina) or high blood pressure.
