Tiazac (Diltiazem ER) is a prescription medication used to treat hypertension and chest pain. Diltiazem ER is a calcium channel blocker. It works by relaxing the blood vessels in the body and the heart so blood can flow more easily. It also lowers the heart rate. This helps the heart work less hard and that lowers your blood pressure. Diltiazem ER is usually taken once daily or as directed by your doctor.
