  • Verapamil -- extra beat

    anyone taking verapamil and find they have a lot of "extra" beats (premature beats)? If it weren't for these extremely annoying $$#@%beats, I would say that the verapamil has really helped. I can actually run up a flight of stairs without getting SOB

    Maybe you need a little beta blocker, like Atenolol, to go with the Verapamil. Talk it over with your cardio the next time you see him.

        Cynthia,

        It's an unwritten law in HCM that your heart will calm down and behave itself immediately upon scheduling and/or going to a cardio appointment.
