please don't confuse the issues, you put all CH sufferers into a state of uncertainty !!!
You wrote: "The calcium channel blockers are the ones that I have the Severe Asthma attacks with",
and later on you wrote that you were taking
1.) INDERAL is a BETA-BLOCKER and it's strictly forbidden to give a beta-blocker to an asthmatic, indeed ! In addition a beta-blocker is (almost)
always useles for CH.
2.) You are taking a CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER
NOW you see, it's VERAPAMIL, and it does N O T cause asthma attacks !
PFDAN! Thomas (med. doctor)
