... I noticed accelerated hair loss since I've been taking it. Is that normal?
You can view a list of side-effects for diltiazem here:
Hair loss is not a reported side-effect of diltiazem. See your doctor if the loss of hair is continuing.
Hairloss is not mentioned in the side effects, but my hair is falling out now. Every time I brush my hair, the brush is full of hair. I've been on diltiazem 120mg for three months. I have tachycardia and emphysema, I did not have high blood pressure when I was put on this medication. I've had most of the side effects during the first two months. They have decreased some. Now I have more breathing problems, hair loss, can't sleep at night, and basically been very jittery AND my blood pressure is higher than it was without the pills. I also have swollen feet and legs - started last week. I would like to get off this drug, but I read that once I quit, my heart would quit too. Found this comment on the web. Don't know how true it is.
