Hi All, I have another question.
My docs are trying to get me to where i can take 45mg of diltiazem (generic cardizem) per day for my psvt/a-fib. they are titrating my dose in 7.5mg increments every 7 days. I began at 7.5 mg 1x per day then after a week i went to 2x per day and today i am to start 3x per day.
i have been on many different antihypertensives in the past. all have caused me to get a stiff neck and very bad headache, every day and when i am taken off of them the stiff neck and headaches go away. when i began the 7.5 mg diltiazem i was fine but as i have titrated my dose, the headaches and stiff neck have come back. also i have noticed that my episodes of psvt/a-fib are back.
when i am not taking the cardio med my episodes of psvt/a-fib are further apart (sometimes weeks to months) but more intense and very dibilitating. when i am on the med i have episodes every day all day long but they are much less intense. has anyone here had this problem or heard of anyone having this problem?
Thanks for your help
