Check Discharge Papers For Generic Long-Acting Calcium Channel Blocker Rxs

It can be confusing at discharge to sort through the long-acting calcium channel blockers...Adalat CC, Cardizem CD, Taztia XT, etc.

Drug suffixes (CR, LA, XT, etc) don't offer much help...there's no standard meaning to these for dosing, substitution, etc.

And community pharmacists in most states usually can't substitute products unless they are rated equivalent by FDA.
