Hello colleague Rob,
I'm general and bone surgeon and periodic for 12 y, I consult my neurologist when needed and we discuss every drug combination and dose - but I prescribe and take as much verapamil as I think that I need myself.
Years ago vera worked perfectly in the dose 3 x 80 mg, as single-drug-therapy. But meanwhile I need up to >900 mg vera/day along with other drugs.
You can't tell cardiologists that you are taking >900 mg of vera a day - they would not beleave it or get a heart attack themselves - but I beleave that many of us would tolerate such high doses distributed over the day and taken for a certain limited period of time, the organism compensates it !
Start with 3 x 80 mg and look !
PFDAN ! Thomas
