I am. Are you having any problems with it? I was having multiple unpredictable tachycardia events and it stopped them so I'm very thankful for it. I've been on it since mid-March.

After years of being on diltiazem,, and Tikosyn and Acebutolol, doc took me off because of low bp. We doubled my Ace to 800mg/day instead.

No. Dr is slowly stopping metoprolol due to shortness of breath and tiredness and increasing diltiazem from 60 mg twice a day to diltiazem er180 once a day for afib.

I've been on Diltiazem 120 mg for 10+ years, no side effects…. it does keep heart rate lower and according to my Doctor is heart beneficial not just from a afib standpoint.
