Like everything with clusters it ain't simple.
Constriction during an attack ( abortives ) is a good thing.
Constriction between attacks may not be so good - our vessels seek equilibrium - what constricts must dilate - dilate too much and we are off to the races.
Verapamil works as a preventative for many because it does not allow the vessels to constrict in the first place. No constriction - then no resultant dilation.
