Description

Cardizem is a calcium channel blocker that opens up blood vessels to lower blood pressure and help to increase blood and oxygen flow to the heart. The active ingredient in Cardizem is called diltiazem hydrochloride. Cardizem releases this ingredient slowly over 24 hours.

Uses of Cardizem

Some people use the medication to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) while others use it to prevent chest pain (angina).

There are many causes of hypertension including hardening of the arteries, kidney disease or hormone imbalances. Hypertension can result to serious problems such as heart attack or stroke but using Cardizem significantly reduces the chances of such serious health issues.

Symptoms of angina include pain or an uncomfortable sensation in the chest. The pain is usually caused by inadequate blood supply to the heart. This pain or sensation sometimes spreads to the neck, shoulder, back, and/or arms.
