Your husband sounds like mine. He takes the same medication. He was on 240mg of verapamil, just went down to 180mg. He uses imitrex pills or injections. He was however on Depakote too. We think his cycle is just about over (we really hope.) An oriental doctor in the ER one night told me he should stay away from aged cheese, chocolet and msg. We really started to watch what he ate, as bland as possible. Can't say if it worked or not but when he was pain free for 5 days he decided to try Chinese Food (no msg), raisonetts (spelling) and a sandwich that had provolone cheese on it (all in the same day) and that night he woke up with pain in his temple and eye. Used the oxogen and was better within 10 minutes, happend again 2 hours later. Coincidence or what?
Have gone back to that bland diet until we are sure its over.
