In brief: Verapamil

Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker that slows conduction at the level of both the sinus node as well as the av node.
This is helpful in atrial arrhythmias like afib and svt to slow the heart rate. Adverse effects could involve too slow a heart rate. It also is a vasodilator. This is helpful in hypertension and protecting against coronary spasm. Adverse events could involve too low a bp.
