Norvasc vs Cardizem

I was on Norvasc but my Dr. changed to Cardizem, I have trouble swalloing and the Norvasc dissolved in my mouth quickly to make it easier to take, the Cardizem Er is a big capsule that is hard to take, should I ask my Dr to go back on Norvasc?? they both seem to work equally well....

First I would ask him what was the motivation for the change.

I tried taking Cardizem and had to stop.  I had been given Cardizem instead of Norvasc for heart spasms.  It was the long lasting Cardizem. I suffered through 12 hours of  awful chest pains. I went back to the Norvasc. It just works better for me.
