My prior prescription said I could take without regard to food. The new one said take on an empty stomach. Both are 180 mg.

Based on information I've gathered, Cardizem CD is just another brand name of Diltiazem XT (as they both contain the same active ingredient). Diltiazem is said to be the generic version, however both medications are reported to come in a 24-hour sustained-release capsule. Other than that, the only other differences may be that they are manufactured by separate companies, and possibly contain a different set of inactive ingredients, otherwise known as fillers. Some of these fillers may be a determinant as to whether or not is it best to take the pill on an empty stomach versus having it with food.

For future reference, other brand names of Diltiazem include the following:
• Progor
• Herben
• Altiazem
• Cardizem
• Cartia XT
• Tiazac
• Tiazac XC
• Tiamate
• Taztia XT
• Tildiem in particular in Europe
• Adizem
• Viazem
• Dilatam
• Dilzem
• Angiozem
• Dilatem
• Dilcardia
• Diltelan
• Diltime
• Dyalec
• Filazem
• Tildiem
• Vasmulax
• Vasocardol & Vasocardol CD, in Australia
• Zandil
• Zemtrial
• Angizem CD
• Angizem
• Dilcontin SR in India (Sustained Release)
• Dilt-CD
• Dilt-XR
• Corzem in Jordan
