Fatigue from diltiazem sr

Taking diltiazem sr 120 mg once a day.  It makes me very tired, any suggestions on how to deal with  this?

    You could talk to your doc about reducing the dose. I was started on extended release diltiazem at 240 mg/day. I felt very dopey and my hr was low. My EP reduced it to 180 and I felt a lot better and it was still enough to do the job. Your current dose is lower still, but this is a very individual condition, and people differ a lot with drugs, so no surprise. There are other rate control drugs that could be tried also. Let us know how it goes!
