Verapamil: Initial Increase in Dizziness?

Hi, All --

I'm wondering whether anyone who has taken verapamil has experienced an initial increase in dizziness that subsequently went away as treatment progressed (say, maybe as your body got used to the medication)?

I have taken it for a couple of days now, and it makes me much dizzier. I'm willing to endure that if there's an "end-game" in sight. But if there isn't, then I'd rather not be on it.

(Btw, I switched from Toprol XL [beta blocker] to verapamil, and didn't have the increased dizziness with Toprol. Of course, the Toprol didn't help with my migraines, either....)

Re: Verapamil: Initial Increase in Dizziness?

Hi Kim,

I tried Verapamil a while back and it definitely increased my dizziness. It was almost like a high frequency vibration type dizziness going on in my head on that stuff. I only lasted two days and just wasn't up for toughing it out in the end. It may have settled I suppose but it also upset my stomach so I decided to forget it.

Good luck and hope it works for you.
