I was told that I could not take this medication because of my naturally slow heartbeat (49-59 bpm) I have high blood pressure which spikes and falls throughout the day. May have to go back to plain old hydrochlorthyizide (spelling?) tablets.

Comment:
I am satisfied with the effectiveness of this medication. However, I have experienced some coughing and arthritis-like pain in my arms and legs. I will discuss these side effects with my primary care doctor. I was previously taking another medication which caused me to expereince severe palpitations, and that is why my doctor switched me to Diltiazem ER, 240 mg.
