How it works
Diltiazem HCl retard belongs to the group of the calcium antagonists. Diltiazem HCl retard is a drug that lowers the heart rate. It has a vasodilating action. As a result, the blood flow of the heart is improved and the pain in the chest due to a shortage of oxygen in the heart muscle avoided. Blood flow in the arteries is also improved and decreases the elevated blood pressure. The effect lasts for 24 hours, therefore one capsule per day is sufficient.
