    I have had migraines for 20+ years.  Have been taking Inderal LA during this time.  Now 56 and still getting at least one migraine a week.  Take imetrix which most of the time clears, but looking for a more preventative way to keep from having them every week.  My doc suggested changing from inderal to verapimil.  Anyone have good/bad experience with this drug??

    Janice,

     

    -:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-•*Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!*•-:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-

     

    Inderal LA worked well for me for several years, then quit working. My doctor switched me to verapamil ER (extended release). It's worked very well for me for over ten years now. My Migraines are stubborn enough that I take more than one preventive medication, but verapamil is the main one.

     

    Welcome again,

    Teri

      Hi Teri, thanks for the reply.  I guess I shouldn't read the internet about side effects of verapimil, but it just concerned me a little about some of them.  When the dr put me on inderal 'years  ago' it also has worked wonders on my MVP (Mitral Valve Prolapse), so one of my concerns was that if I stopped it and went with verapimil, that issue would not come back.  Do or did you notice any out of the ordinary side affects when you started it?  What mg do you take?  Also, you mentioned that you take other meds/herbals, would you mind telling me more about what you take?  Thanks,

      Janice
