Patricia Says:

Because of my extreme drug sensitivity, I need to take the brand name Cardizem for my A-fib. Due to production problems, it was not available after December 2017 with the availability not returning until April 2018. I feel as though the new release is not the same as the prior capsules... There appears to be less medication contained in it and I am not getting the same benefit from the Cardizem 120mg I was taking before the production problem. The pharmaceutical company is Valeant. Can this be checked out? Did anyone else have this problem with the new release? Thank you.

Hello, Patricia! How are you? Has there been any change?

Can you be more specific regarding what issues you are experiencing? Saying you aren't getting the same benefit is rather vague, and that makes it hard to help you.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.
