Mylan 6060 Red Capsule
What is Mylan 6060? What kind of medication is the red and white capsule with Mylan 6060 written on its sides?
Mylan 6060 red and white capsule is 60 mg Diltiazem hydrochloride (generic for Cartia XT). Each red and white capsule with "Mylan 6060" written in black on both sides contains 60 mg of Diltiazem HCl.
Diltiazem is in a group of the so called calcium channel blockers. The medicne is used for treating hypertension (high blood pressure), chronic stable angina (chest pain), and certain heart rhythm disorders. It works by relaxing the muscles of your heart and blood vessels.
Mylan Pharmaceutical manufactures and distributes Diltiazem HCl in the form of XR (CD) and SR extended-release capsules. The abbreviation "XR" stands for "extended-release". CD means "controlled delivery", SR - "sustained release". Although in each case, you get a pill with a prolonged action, XR and SR variations of the drug work differently because the mechanism used to disperse the drug varies in them. As a result, the recommended doses of SR variations of Diltiazem HCl are normally only equal halves of the recommended doses of XR variations.
Mylan 6060 capsules belong to the SR variation of Diltiazem HCl.
