Can Cardizem LA be replaced with Cardizem CD?

- cardizem, cardizem cd, cardizem la, nebivolol
My physician changed the dose of my Cardizem (LA) from 420 mg to 120 mg and added nebivolol, but rather than write LA, he wrote Cardizem CD. Are these products interchangeable?

Yes, they are both long acting formulations of Cardizem. The only difference is that one is a capsule and the other is a tablet. If you have a preference talk with your pharmacist so that you get the same dose form each time.
