What is Dilzem?
Dilzem is used to treat high blood pressure, chest pains, and angina. It works by relaxing the blood vessels and muscles in the heart. By helping the blood flow more easily, this drug helps to reduce the risk and severity of angina attacks, and increases the ability of the patient to exercise and live an active lifestyle. The medication is for use regularly as a preventative, and not for use during an angina attack.

How is Dilzem used?
The normal dosage for patients prescribed Dilzem ranges from 30mg to 60mg taken 3 or 4 times daily. The exact dosage varies depending on the patient's medical history and the severity of their condition. Never exceed the dose prescribed to you by your health care provider. If you have been prescribed this drug to treat high blood pressure, always complete the course of medication you have been prescribed unless otherwise instructed by your health care provider.

Adverse effects
Patients using Dilzem may encounter unwanted side effects such as:

  • Swollen hands or feet
  • Slow or irregular heartbeat
  • Burning sensations
  • Blistering
  • Stomach pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Yellowing of the eyes or skin

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.

Dilzem is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems, especially liver, kidney or heart problems.
