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

I have taken Verapamil SR 120mg once a day for 10 yrs. to slow my heartbeat down and help my heart to relax and pump more efficient. I notice that when I don't take it my chest will hurt. So taking it everyday is very important.
