Discussions that mention diltiazem

Heart Disorders board


They haven't suggested ablation for me either since mine are controlled by meds. I have also known a few people to have it done and their SVTs and PVCs have gotten worse.
I was also on Verapamil for over 15 years and they recently switched me to Diltiazem. I have borderline high blood pressure, but with the Diltiazem and low dose of Atenolol my bp runs low. I am due to see the cardio next month and want to see if they can decrease the Diltiazem since my bp is low and Ihave been having dizzy spells. I see numbers in the 99/56 range in the morning and normally are 110/68. I just don't want the SVTs to rear their ugly head since I have been free of them for almost 6 months.
