  • Question about Dilzem Sr

    Does Dilzem SR increase Asthma?

    In the past diltiazem was investigated as a treatment for asthma but the beneficial effects were too small to recommend it as a positive treatment but generally diltiazem works to relax smooth muscle and does not therefore provoke asthma of the lungs.

    In care cases diltiazem can weaken hearts and cause fluid build up in the lungs which some doctors may call "cardiac asthma" but this is not the usual asthma we mean.

  • Question about Tilt Test

    At 6' and 20", I suddenly developed severe Bradycardia and asystole of 9 seconds, linked to syncope (fainting) and seizure. Does this require any treatment or operation?

    This depends on how often you faint and whether this was both a blood pressure drop and heart slowing down. Many young patients with your type of results have lifestyle advice to avoid dropping blood pressure and we have a watch and wait approach and some folks have enough symptoms that we hope by giving them a pacemaker and blood pressure increasing medications we can improve their quality of life and reduce blackouts. However putting pacemakers into younger people should always be considered carefully whether the risks and benefits stack up in favour or not.
