: I been taking verapamil for ten years for mvp symptoms, mainly to slow my heart rate down but now about 45 mintutes after taking the med my heart will beat really really fast, it don't always do it, I tried cutting the dose down which helps, it don't beat as fast and as long but it still will speed up but my blood pressure went up to 150 over 100 yesterday. Only difference in my life is that I have lost alot of weight, have lost about 15 pounds in six weeks due to gallbladder surgery and seems like the reaction got worst after more weight lost. When it gets to beating fast I then have an anxiety attacks which don't help matters any, anyone have any imput on why this medication I been taking so long would all of suddenly just up and cause a side effect, response please. I tried to talk to my doctor about it and he kinda just blew me off. I am really concerned and just simply don't understand why this is happening to me unless it has gotten something to do with the weight lost but then why did my blood pressure go up after cutting dosage down? I so confused. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
I was diagnosed with uncontrollable svt and I am supposed to be taking verapamil or go have
ablation surgery done. I am terrified of both. I have never taken the verapamil and I will keep
researching until I can possibly find a way of controlling this without drugs or surgery. I know
that the svt has altered my life considerably and has interferred with all aspects and quality
of my life. I hope you do a follow up with your doctor . Your side effects may be an indication
you need your medicine changed or checked. good luck.
