Not only my opinionated opinion but the consensus the cluster medical community.

You didn't mention it so I can only assume you are not aware of it.

It is a calcium channel blocker used for hypertension.

It keeps calcium out of the cells in the walls of our blood vessels which prevents them from constricting ( maybe dilating too ).

It is very benign - the most benign of any meds that actualy work as preventatives - the most common side effects are constipation and maybe some sluggishness. Does no permanent damage like some of the others.

If your Doctor did not talk to you about verapamil I humbly suggest that you kill him :-) right after you arrogantly and condescendingly tell him how ignorant he is :-)
