Thanks Scott and Rich for the input.
Rich, I took Verapamil for six weeks, 120mg per day. I didn't have any side effects from it. My normal bp is around 120-130/60-70. I noticed it dropped my bp down to below 120 sometimes. My normal heartrate is around 60 and that didn't change either. I read somewhere that bp meds don't lower "normal" bp, only high bp, although they don't really know why that is! So if you're in the normal range you shouldn't drop below that.
I stopped the Verapamil because Dr. Hain figured it wasn't helping me much. He also stopped the Betahistine. We decided to try Inderal at 80mg per day before bed. I haven't started it. I am stubborn as a mule about medication. I just don't want to have to take anything, particularly if we end up having a second child. I don't know if I'll be able to hold out or not without the medication. I've been off the Verapamil for over a week now and I'm not doing well. It could be hormones so I'm trying to wait it out and see if I get better. I'm so tired of this madness. My anxiety level is way up there. I can hardly leave the house for fear of fainting, having a stroke, you name it. I'm just not living life, while everyone around me is, and my kid is paying the price. I decided to start looking for a good anxiety therapist to see if anyone can figure out how to help me fix some of this.
I hope you do well on the Verapamil and the Klonopin. You deserve some good days after all you've been through.
