What is Diltiazem?

Diltiazem is used to treat several medical conditions, including hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain), and even to slow unusually fast heartbeats.

Diltiazem is in a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. It works by relaxing (widening) your blood vessels (veins and arteries), which in turn makes it easier for your heart to pump and reduces the workload on it.

Some of the brand names that diltiazem is marketed under include Cardizem®, Cartia XT®, Tiazac®, and Tiamate®.
