Diltiazem review by care giver of 74 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Marginally Effective
Side effects:   Severe Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   atrial fib
Dosage & duration:   30 mg taken 1/day for the period of 5 days
Other conditions:   high blood pressure, sick sinus syndrome
Other drugs taken:   warfarin lipitor flecanide
Reported Results
Benefits:   It seemed to reduced blood pressure. No other benefits were observed.
Side effects:   Itchy red urticartia over entire body. This rash covered every inch of skin, causing swelled face and eyes. Anti-histimines did not relieve. Condition self relieved 2 weeks after stopping drug.
Comments:   This was taken in case atrial fib resumed, in order to keep heart rate down. Atrial fib did not return during drug treatment, so it is unknown if it would have help to keep heart rate down in the event of atrial fib.
