I was on verapamil and lithium in the midst of a severe cycle. I increased dosage of verapamil to 480mg/day. Lithium was 600mg/day. While waiting for the new dosage to take effect I asked for decacort - dexamethasone - a very powerful steroid. It is only for short term relief - 13 days, but I beleive it will work for your husband. It should work in 24 hours and give him some breathing space.
I don't know how much verapamil your husband is taking but don't forget that you can increase dosage under a physicians guidance. I believe that the max dosage is in the 900's mg/day.
