About DILZEM I.V INJECTION 5ML

DILZEM I.V INJECTION 5ML belongs to the group of anti-hypertensive medicines called 'calcium channel blockers' used to treat mild to moderate hypertension (high blood pressure) and prevent angina pectoris (chest pain). High blood pressure is a condition in which the pressure in the blood vessels is increased. The blood exerts pressure on the walls of blood vessels with increased pressure leading to hypertension. Angina pectoris or chest pain occurs due to reduced blood flow to the heart, which is caused by narrowing or blockage of the heart’s arteries (coronary artery).

DILZEM I.V INJECTION 5ML contains 'Diltiazem' which works by relaxing the blood vessels in your heart and body, which reduces your raised blood pressure. Besides this, DILZEM I.V INJECTION 5ML also lowers your irregular heart rate/rhythm and dilates your coronary arteries. As a result, your heart will have less burden and will be not too much overloaded to pump blood throughout your body. Together DILZEM I.V INJECTION 5ML lowers your blood pressure, thereby reducing your chest pain (angina).
