 4  High blood pressure Some ankle swelling Over the years, I've taken diltiazem HCL in several forms - - generic, as cardizem and as tiazac. All have been very satisfactory. Unfortunately, this single drug (at 240 mg a day dosage)could not completely control my high BP. I now also take altace (5 mg/day) and HCTZ (10 mg/day) and my BP is generally 120/75. I was prescribed the HCTZ, a diuretic, because of slight ankle swelling thought to be associated with the tiazac. M 62 15 years

TIAZAC  (DILTIAZEM HYDROCHLORIDE):  Diltiazem is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and prevent chest pain (angina). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. When used regularly, diltiazem can decrease the number and severity of episodes of chest pain from angina. It may help increase your ability to exercise. Diltiazem is called a calcium channel blocker. It works by relaxing blood vessels in the body and heart so blood can flow more easily. Diltiazem also lowers your heart rate. These effects help the heart work less hard and lower blood pressure.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
