I've had severe weight gain after being on nadolol for 2 years without success in diet plans. Dr switched me to diltizem CD 120 mg at bedtime. My heart rate was up to 100-110 today (I just started it last night and stopped the nadolol). How long does it take for it to have a full effect on my system? A few days or weeks? How long before I should tell my Dr to up the dose? Thank you.

It may take about 4 to 5 weeks for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body, and things are likely more severe, due to stopping the other medication and switching to the new one.

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

How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change?
