My husband passed away on an overdose of verapamil. Please explain side effects and causes of death with a overdose of this nature. ?
Slow the heart: There are 3 types of calcium channel blockers: first is norvasc/also called amlodipine. It opens the arteries fighting hbp, angina, and even raynaud's. 2nd is cardizem/diltiazem which is 1/2 way between Norvasc & verapamil (isoptin). Verapamil is the 3d and good for treating irregular heart beats, hbp, and angina as well as migraines. It likely slowed his heart &/or lowered the BP too far. Hrs.See 1 more doctor answer
Verapamil: If its short acting verapamil, about 2 to 3 days tops to get levels down. If its sustained release verapamil, then 5 or more days could be required to get the side effects down.
No interactions: These two drugs do not produce any dangers or extra side effects when taken together, but they both do have their own side effect profiles of which you certainly could experience.Common with Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is decreased appetite, trouble sleeping,headache,nervousness, dry mouth, slight tremor, and palpitations (among others).

I was prescribed 120 ER verapamil. Don't like the side effects. Have taken for 5 days. Do I have to wean off or can I just stop?
Just stop it: It should be safe to just stop it. It is a relatively low dose as well.
I'm taking verapamil for SVT & mild hypertension. How does it differ from diltiazem? Diltiazem seems to have less serious possible side effects.
Good drungs: Both are good medicines for svta and have similar mechanism of action . Check with your physician if you like it changed.
Hi I just wanted to know if breast cancer is linked to taking verapamil? Is breast cancer one of the side effects ?
I doubt it: A year after the big paper, there seems to be little ongoing concern. There was an older study with a similar result and many without any sign of a link. Epidemiology based on recollection generates huge amounts of garbage; physicians Rxing verapamil (a good medicine) may be more skilled at diagnosing breast cancer earlier, and there may be corruption. I would take the right BP med for you.See 1 more doctor answer
I sent in a question earlier about being on levoxyl 200mcg. Extreme tiredness and foggy head. Also taking verapamil 80mg bid for side effects for verapamil that are serious are extreme fatigue and lack of energy. Could it be this or something else. Theses
Extreme : Extreme fatigue is a very concerning symptom. It sounds like you have significant medical conditions. Please be sure your thyroid levels have been checked recently. You may need other blood tests including to be sure you are not anemic. Please be sure that your blood pressure is running normally. Your doctor will want to know about these symptoms.
Many: Possible side effects: arrhythmias, possible mentation changes and habit forming potential. I have never prescribed it, but per literature review its side effect profile is similar to Phentermine, commonly used for weight loss purposes. In my opinion the risk of using it outweighs its benefits.
Less common: All medications have side effects. Fexofenadine (allegra) is a newer or second generation anti-histamine. It does not cause usual side effects associated with older or first generation antihistamines such as drowsiness, dry mouth, urinary retention or palpitations. Some sensitive persons complains of mild drowsiness. Other listed side effects include headache, heart burn, muscle pain, somnolence.
