It took a little while for my body to adjust to it, but I have been on it for 4 years and my bp is great, also no noticeable side effects.

I have taken Verapamil for more than 15 years. It works. I don't have horrible side-effects that I have had from other BP meds. It is interesting to read that other people have had problems... back to every BODY is different.

Have been on verapamil for over 30 years. Taken for vascular headaches. Fantastic results. No headache in years. (Unless some doctor tries to take me off and put me on newer drug.) cheap,effective,works well for me. 40 years teaching high school very high stress also keeps blood pressure at normal levels. One caveat to this med. Every insurance company or doctor thinks I have a high blood pressure problem. Have to explain why I use verapamil.
