Were you looking for information about Cardizem? Cardicem is a common misspelling of Cardizem.
Cardizem® (diltiazem hydrochloride) is a prescription medication licensed to treat certain types of chest pain. As a calcium channel blocker, it works to relax the blood vessels and improve blood flow by slowing down the rate at which calcium moves into the heart and blood vessel walls. Although Cardizem is tolerated well by most people, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using this medication, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other health conditions you have, as well as any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and supplements).
