I am taking verapamil for visual disturbance/headache but my doctor is suspecting simple partial seizures. Would the verapamil reduce these?

I am taking verapamil for visual disturbance/headache  but my doctor is suspecting simple partial seizures.  Would the verapamil reduce these?

Verapamil: Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker and is typically used for vascular related diseases (e.g., hypertension). There are calcium channels on neurons that may be affected, but this may be a theoretic pharmacological drug target. Some headaches, however, are thought to have a vascular etiology, so i suspect that is the target. I recommend asking your physician. ...Read more

Is it possible for glasses with the wrong prescription to give you headaches?

Absolutely: Over or under correction, or a prism where none is needed can lead to headaches. The greater the difference the worse the issue. Your eye muscles will try to strain to improve or fix the correction and after a period start to fatigue and/or spasm. It is pretty common for glasses prescriptions to be incorrect per consumers reports. Go to a reputable office for refraction/glasses. ...Read more
