Cartia XL is used to treat angina. It usually does not angina. The most common side effect is edema

Ok. But I've read that you should not take cartia if you have angina. Why is that?
If you have new or changing angina, you should see your doctor ASAP. Otherwise, Diltiazem is a potent coronary but a mild arterial vasodilator, producing improved blood flow through coronary epicardial vessels, collaterals, and normal and ischemic myocardium, as well as lowering mean arterial pressure. Diltiazem has been shown to reduce anginal frequency in several clinical trials

One last question please. I'm taking 320mg Valsartan could that be causing these sudden symptoms?
No. Valsartan does not cause these symptoms.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
