Cartia XT (Diltiazem CD)
Cartia XT (Diltiazem CD) is an Extended-Release tablet used to treat hypertension, chest pain and certain heart rhythm disorders. Diltiazem CD belongs to the group of drugs called calcium channel blockers. This medication works by relaxing blood vessels in the body and heart so blood can flow more easily. It also lowers the heart rate. This helps the heart work less hard and lowers blood pressure. You may be able to prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems by lowering high blood pressure. If Diltiazem is used regularly, it can decrease the number and severity of episodes of chest pain from angina. It may also help increase your ability to exercise.
