Elevated heart rate after stopping Diltiazem
I stopped taking Diltiazem on February 14th and was feeling fine. On February 19th I exercised for around 2 hours. Towards the end of my workout I found that under heavy exertion my heart rate would skyrocket for a few minutes and then calm back down. I ended my workout after a few episodes like this. However, since then (three days going on four now) my heart rate has been constant around 140. I informed my doctor and they recommended I get back on the Diltiazem. I am two days into that and my heart rate does not seem to be changing.
Has anyone experienced more sensitivity to exersise after stopping Dilitazem?
Thank you for your attention.
