Heart rate with Diltiazem

I used to take beta blockers and then my doctor told me to expect that my heart rate would not climb much during exercise.
What about with Diltiazem?
Has anyone noticed if they have a more normal response to exercise?

I’ve been on Diltiazem 240mg for about a month. I’m 71 years young and exercise regularly. Before starting D my target rate was 130-135 bpm, now I find that about 120-125 I feel about the same.
