I was taken off of atenolol and put on verapamil. I took it for 2 days and had a bad reaction. Rapid heart rate and bp at 244, short of breath and red, red face. emt to me to hospital for a night stay. Nitro patch brought the BP down. Had to go back on Atenolol. Not a good experience.

I use this in combo with lisinopril. Keeps my blood pressure in the 120/75 range most of the time. I used to have headaches, and they went away completely. I too can drink a beer again without a headache

Comment:
This drug has reduced my blood pressure to where it is almost normal in a short period of time HOWEVER I pee 3-4 times per night and that is getting a little old.I may ask for something different that does not have this side effect if that exists.
