Cartia XT is commonly prescribed for treating high blood pressure and specific types of angina. By slowing down the rate at which calcium moves into your heart and blood vessel walls, the medicine can help lower blood pressure and make it easier for the heart to pump blood. Common side effects of Cartia XT may include water retention, headache, and weakness.
- Slow heart rate (bradycardia)
- Swelling or water retention, especially in the hands, feet, or lower leg (edema)
