Since I have been on Cardizem I am continually fighting bladder infections & the burning associated with a baldder infection. Has anyone experienced this? My Dr doesn't think my problem & the medicine are linked. I stopped taking it for a week and my problem went away. It slowed my heart rate but did nothing for my BP

This is the only drug (cardizem cd) that lowered my BP, heart rate,and my lifetime pain from migraine headaches. It was not prescribed for my migraines. My migraines did stop however when I began taking cardizem cd for my BP and heart rate. When the migraines (had them even as a child), it was like God had finally reach out and touched me! The migraines had been horrible.I've beenon the drug for some time now.

To those who say they are having severe leg pain on this drug --- yes indeed! This medication and all others in the same class can cause severe leg and muscle problems. If this happens to you contact your doctor immediately. You need to be off it! I am having severe problems with dizziness, extreme tiredness and weakness since being put on Cardizem. I will stop taking it ASAP. This is the third calcium channel blocker my cardiologist has tried and I am not able to take any of them. I was much better without it. So, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!

dizzy leg swell

Comment from: Shore, 45-54 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: February 12

MY doctor prescribed this med after neck surgery. I was having difficulty swallowing my 300mg capsules (CD). Due to post-op swelling, I crushed these pills in ice cream to take them. The CD cannot be crushed. Took until swelling went down, then went back on cardizem CD 300mg daily. This pill saved me when I could not swallow.
