Diltiazem belongs to the class of drugs known as calcium channel blockers. Diltiazem inhibits the entry of calcium into heart muscle cells by partially blocking some of the calcium channels. This reduces the strength of contraction in heart muscle cells. It also affects the electrical activity of the heart by slowing the heart rate and delaying electrical conduction between the tissues of the upper and lower chambers of the heart. It is primarily used in the treatment and sometimes prevention of cardiac arrhythmias and in managing hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in some cats.
