Rob- This is from Renee Johnson-I'm new on here! I take 6 tablets of 80mg of verapamil every day when I'm in my cycle of CH. It works! I NEVER HAVE ANY HEADACHES taking it this way. My bother has CH and he had them chronically until he went to the same doctor that I do. He takes 8 tablets-80mg of verapamil a day!!! The first doctor that my brother saw put him on 1 to 2 tablets 250mg time released a day. It didn't help at all. Our doctor believes that the KEY to taking it is the 80mg of the verapamil. Our doctor has said that other doctors out there are afraid to give this high of a dose.WHY? I don't know and I really don't care because it helps me and I don't live in HELL anymore! I have been taking it this way for 5 yrs.and I am fine!!! Very healthy! I hope everyone reads this and will talk to their doctor about trying the same dosage we take. Oh! I don't take all 6 tablets at once! Never do that! I take 2 at breakfast,2 after a late lunch or afternoon snack and then 2 around 10:30pm. PLEASE Everyone try this!!!
