Comment from: Atrial fib, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 1-2 years (Patient) Published: March 27

Took 120mg CD for a year after a-fib and had no other attacks until I recently went back into the hospital with the same. Dr. raised it to 240mg which lowered D&S BP by 25 points each and stopped the irregular heart beat. Slightly lethargic as I was when first getting on it, but got adjusted to it after about six weeks. I suppose it will again take some time. I also raised concern about label warning as I take Zocor, but Dr. assures me no conflict with the two meds.

Although it is a once a day medication, it has failed to drop my BP even ten points, high or low.

I have been taking Cardizem CD for 2 months. It seemed to work at first but now I am retaining water really badly in my legs, hands and feet. I'm calling my doctor today.

I took Cardizem for the first time recently and suffered some side effects that I was not aware of because I had not read about them any where prior to taking it. They were bloating or swelling of my stomach area and terrible insomnia. It would not let me sleep! I got my doctor to take me off this drug. Beware!

Left ankle and foot swelled so much by early evening I no longer had an arch to my foot. It hurt so bad I could not walk on it.

My blood pressure was 210/140 when they started me on this med. Within 3 days it was under control and now I take it daily. If I forget a dose at the correct time, my pressure will start to go up.

I have been on Cardizem for about 2months for high BP, fast heart rate and palpations. I haven't noticed a big difference at all my BP is still 140/90 to 145/100. Still having palpations too. My doctor also prescribed me Metoprolol. I have heard I should not take a calcium channel blocker with a beta blocker but my doctor says it is ok...still no decrease in symptoms.
