Herbesser Diltiazem Tablets (30mg/100mg)
Diltiazem is a calcium channel-blocker, which is used in veterinary medicine to treat hypertension and certain cardiac arrhythmias. This drug is approved in human medicine under the trade names Cardizem, Dilacor, or Tiazac. Diltiazem causes vasodilatation, decreases peripheral resistance, blood pressure, and cardiac afterload. Diltiazem also slows the sinus firing rate. At normal doses it is less likely to affect cardiac contractility than some other Ca channel blockers.
Diltiazem is rapidly absorbed following oral administration and is metabolized by the liver. Bioavailability is less in dogs than in cats and the levels reported in both species are less than those reported in humans. It may be given orally and intravenously.
