Verapamil and amlodipine are both calcium channel blockers that are used to treat hypertension. Verapamil is also sometimes used to treat rhythm disturbances. These are not usually prescribed together. Usually we prescribe a calcium channel blocker with a different class of medicine for blood pressure if it is needed. Check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Uncommon to be treated with both meds. Talk to your doctor and monitor your blood pressure. If both meds are not needed then changes could be made
