1 doctor agrees

In brief: It depends

Verapamil is a medication that is used to control high blood pressure.
It is also prescribed for several other conditions including migraine headaches, cardiac rhythm disturbances, coronary artery disease etc. Unlike some medications, stopping verapamil will not lead to withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the condition your physician may decide to stop the medication abruptly or reduce the dose.
