The class of medications effectively treats high blood pressure and angina (chest pain). Diltiazem treats some types of irregular heartbeats, clinically termed arrhythmias. It works by causing the relaxation of blood vessels in the body and heart. Thus, it lowers the heart rate. Blood can flow more easily, and the heat load is reduced, making it less hard for the heart to pump blood.
