Product Overview

Dilzem is a medication containing the active ingredient Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker. It is available in various formulations, including tablets and capsules, and is primarily used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), angina (chest pain), and certain heart rhythm disorders. Diltiazem works by relaxing and widening blood vessels, which helps to improve blood flow and reduce the workload on the heart.

Uses

Dilzem is prescribed for the management of hypertension (high blood pressure) to help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and kidney problems. It is also used to treat chronic stable angina, a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. Additionally, Dilzem may be prescribed to control certain heart rhythm disorders, such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.

How to Use

Dilzem should be taken exactly as prescribed by a healthcare professional. It is typically taken orally with or without food, as directed. The dosage and frequency of administration will depend on the patient’s medical condition and response to treatment. It is important to swallow the tablets or capsules whole, without crushing or chewing them. If a dose is missed, it should be taken as soon as remembered unless it is almost time for the next scheduled dose. Do not double the dose to catch up.

How it Works

Dilzem belongs to a class of medications known as calcium channel blockers. It works by inhibiting the influx of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle cells and myocardial cells, leading to vasodilation (widening of blood vessels) and decreased peripheral vascular resistance. This results in reduced blood pressure and improved blood flow to the heart muscle, relieving angina symptoms and helping to stabilize heart rhythm disorders.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage of Dilzem varies depending on the patient’s medical condition and response to treatment. It is usually started at a low dose and gradually increased as needed under the supervision of a healthcare provider. The typical adult dosage for hypertension ranges from 180 mg to 360 mg per day, divided into multiple doses. For angina, the usual dosage is 120 mg to 360 mg per day, also divided into multiple doses. The dosage for heart rhythm disorders may vary and should be determined by a doctor.

Benefits

Dilzem helps to effectively lower blood pressure, reduce the frequency and severity of angina attacks, and stabilize heart rhythm disorders. By improving blood flow to the heart and reducing the workload on the heart muscle, it can help prevent serious cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes. It provides symptomatic relief and improves quality of life for individuals with hypertension, angina, and certain heart rhythm disorders.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of it may include dizziness, headache, flushing, nausea, constipation, and fatigue. These side effects are usually mild and may diminish with continued use as the body adjusts to the medication. However, if any of these side effects persist or worsen, it is important to notify a healthcare provider promptly.

Warnings

Dilzem should be used with caution in individuals with certain medical conditions, including heart failure, liver or kidney disease, and low blood pressure. It may interact with other medications, including certain antibiotics, antifungals, and psychiatric medications, so it is important to inform a doctor about all medications being taken. It should not be used during pregnancy unless clearly needed, as it may harm an unborn baby. It is important to follow all instructions provided by a healthcare provider when taking it.

Storage Information

It should be stored at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep it out of reach of children and pets. Do not store it in the bathroom or near the kitchen sink, as moisture and humidity can affect its stability. If any unused or expired medication needs to be discarded, it should be done properly according to local regulations or guidelines.
