Hi Maggie

I am also from the UK and experiencing the same types of problems as yourself. I've been on the Verapamil for some four years now and the dosage has steadily risen from 80mg daily to 240mg sustained release. I am a chronic sufferer and for the last year or so I have been experiencing quite a number of breakthrough ha's which can become a cluster. All I do is take a further half dose of Verapamil a few hours before the time when I think the ha will begin and this seems to work to abort the cluster (not ha ) within 24-48 hours.
You could also try oxygen to abort or indeed lessen the pain until the verapamil starts to work again.
