Cardizem is the name brand, is that right? Plus there must be MANY other names
that are Generic but they are all the same, is that right? 1. Cartia XT 2. Diltizem ER (XR/XT) 3. Dilacor Xr. Plus each manufacturer has a different colored pill for the same thing, is that right? Just got a new prescription for Diltizem ER (XR/XT) and it is a peach and light pink large capsule - once before it was a pill and before
that it was an orange and white capsule called Cartia XT. I wish someone could reassure me about what I'm safely taking.

Hello, Joyce! How are you?

Yes, these are all just different names for Diltiazem in an extended release formulation, however, the generic is actually just called Diltiazem, since that is the actual drug name.

This medication is a calcium channel blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension.

They all have to have different markings in order for them to be traced back to the correct manufacturer, in case of an emergency and there are no regulations regarding how they have to look.

Is there anything else I can help with?
