Diltiazem 120mg...super Sleepy

Just me Says:

I've been taking diltiazem 120 milligrams once in the morning and once at night. I've been taking it for several months and I can never fully wake up I feel super sleepy all the time my doctor said to try to start taking it at night only. When will that other extra dose get out of my system and when will I possibly feel more awake?

It may take a week, or two, before things fully settle back down and you really start to feel better.

Have you ever checked your blood pressure, while feeling that sleepy?

While this medication can cause drowsiness and dizziness as side effects, according to the FDA, it shouldn't be that severe. You may be experiencing very low blood pressure.

Might be too much. Check your blood pressure.
