What are the differences between Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and Diltiazem HCL SA?

Asked by Liza Lokhmatov 3 years ago.

Cardizem LA, Cardizem CD and diltiazem HCl SA are essentially the same thing. They are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (cardiac chest pressure) and certain cardiac irregularities. Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), is the generic name for the drug. One company sells it as Cardizem CD, another as Cardizem LA. There is also a formulation callled Cardizem SR. Diltiazem is a three time a day medication unless it is formulated to be released slowly over 24 hours. When this is the case, it is once daily and bears the CD, LA, SR or SA designation. These stand for phrases like long-acting and slow release. Technically, there may be trivial distinctions between the different slow release mechanisms, but from a practical standpoint, they should be considered identical.

A flirt is someone who will talk nasty to you, give you sexual looks and give the occasional long hug. a tease is someone who shows skin, more of a look but don't touch kind of deal. Get you in a room start messing around, then make some excuse of why they can't go any further. I prefer the flirt over the tease!!
