I agree to this extent: I think there was a time a couple of years ago when I continued to take verapamil (360, I think) when I didn't absolutely need it, and I think in some strange way it turned me from episodic to mild-chronic (i.e., headaches all the time, but some manageable periods with only shadows etc.). Maybe if I had gone off the verapamil, and weathered a few headaches, the cycle would have broken or dissipated itself.
Again, like you, I have absolutely no real basis for saying this -- I just think it's true. Most assuredly, your thoughts on this are worth pursuing.
