The average time it takes to leave the body is 8 hours.  If you think you are still having side effects from it, you're not.  Probably just anxiety.

Doesn't it depend on the type of Diltiazem, whether it's slow release or not? I take the slow release type, once a day. I thought I read the half life is about 16 hours. When I went off of my med, it took 3 days before my chest pains came back.

In either case, I'd say (msanxiety) that the med is out of your system by now.
