I know there are some folks here who have had problems with Diltiazem. I've been taking it (120mg.) for 1.5 weeks now, and have some side effects. In addition to the usual side effects listed for this med., has anyone experienced a rise in blood pressure? I thought this drug was suposed to lower it, but it has raised it, in my case. Also, I'm getting swollen ankles, insomnia, etc. Too bad; I was hoping it would work better. The other alternative my cardiogist offered was beta blockers, which make me feel like a zombie.
