    Calcium Channel Blockers vs. Beta Blockers

    My doctor just prescribed a calcium channel blocker (Adalat CC) for a preventative vs. a beta blocker. She did so because she wanted to minimize side effects.

    I just talked to a doctor on call because I still have a headache (maybe because I'm coming off Excedrin...or?) and he said the majority of patients he prescribed a calcium channel blocker for vs. a beta blocker, found their headaches to be WORSE, not better with the calcium channel blocker. Wonderful...!! So, is my headache now related to the Adalat CC or do I need to give it more time. I took Excedrin yesterday morning and know I get addicted to it. How much time should I give the Adalat CC before I ask for a beta blocker?
