Time of day to apply diltiazem?

Postby petrichor » 19 Jun 2018, 18:31

Just wondering if it matters when you do it. My rx just says "apply daily" so I guess it's just once a day instead of twice as I've known some of you have been told.

Thanks xP

How's it working or you?

I've been doing morning and night which usually is right after my BMs anyway. If I go an extra time during the day, it's usually very irritating so I use it then, too.

That's too bad. Does it at least help?

I feel better, but that doesn't tell me much because I usually feel better after a week anyway. So I have no clue if it's really doing anything.

It’s difficult to say. Sometimes I think it does help a little but when the pain is really bad I don’t feel it really does much.

I’ve been experiencing quite a bit of burning after BM’s and I sometimes think the burning may be due to the creams. Like I said it’s difficult to judge sometimes.

I was prescribed Nitro and my Dr seems to think it will help me more even if there may be side effects to it.

I’m just waiting for the right time to start taking it.
