I'm new here and certainly no doctor. Just an eleven year CH cufferer. I've been on Verapamil for the last five years and nothing else. Not sure if it helps but I only have episodes about every year and a half since starting the Verapamil. At first it was 240 mg SR a day then upped to the same pill twice a day. Since my most recent episode is over and I forgot my pm dose of Verapamil last night I'm going back to just the once a day 240 mg SR as long as I don't get into another episode. My reason is because my blood pressure was getting low enough to scare me ( 96/61 and 112/76) so seems the Verapamil did it's original intended job for me. Wish I could be of more help. Just wanted to share my experience in case it does help.
