Is anyone on diltiazemfor afib
yes, that and sotolol
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.
Yes, been on Diltiazem 120 mg ER for AFib rate control for 10 years, along with Flecainide for 9 years and now Dofetilide.

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.
