    240 mg Cardizem CD Generic (Diltiazem CD) caused allergic reaction in one week. Red-Itchy Rash on hairy portions of body (groin, underarms, beard, head, chest and back), nothing on legs or arms. Face was red, flush and hot, ears puffy. Rash lasted one week while taking 50 mg of Benadryl 4 x day. It may work for others, but definitely not my chemistry.

    yes, this medication has lowered my BP and I have has no further episodes of racing heart. However, the swelling of my feet is severe, causing discomfort. Really find this side effect life changing and worrisome.
