Lee's BP skyrocketed during his last cycle--even while taking verapamil and he's always had good BP. I felt like you that he was going to have a stroke or heart attack at this level! Doc thought it was a drug interaction since Lee takes meds for other conditions. But, changing his meds didn't seem to impact it. We were able to keep tabs on it because we have a home monitor. He seemed to be experiencing anxiety attacks (not during CH attacks) during which the BP became quite elevated. He hasn't experienced either since his cycle ended 2 months ago. Just keep an eye on the BP--good idea anyway while taking verapamil. Keep us posted.
