As a rule diltazem which is a calcium channel blocker is not great for pvcs so i would try another beta blocker ie Coreg , atenolol or inderal (propranolol).

Beta blockers are not the most effective drugs for pvcs, but they have one of the highest efficacy:safety ratios. That said, certain types of pvcs are particularly sensitive to suppression by calcium channel blockers, and these drugs are generally quite safe as well. Verapamil and Diltiazem are the most common. An electrophysiologist can help you choose the best option.
