Gina, Verapamil does cause constipation, for some less for others more.
If your S/O couldn't use the throne for a week, it is high time that he gets some relief, otherwise toxic reactions are threatening.
But after this, some harmless and not too bad tasting house remedies are available:
dried plums (for me, 2 or 3 a day will do the trick)
cooked apples (by example in the form of apple pie)
bruised linseed, a spoonful mixed with the breakfast cereals or a yoghurt. (note: the whole seed are not digestible)
and of course, good old castor oil ;-)
I hope he can solve this problem, as Verapamil is otherwise of great help for CH
