  • Verapamil ...

    A few times I had forgotten to take my verapamil when I usually take it around 9:00/9:30 every a.m. For example, today I took it at 10:45 and once or twice before I took it at 11:00. I've noticed that I don't feel any funny beats during the time prior...about 20 min.-30 min. after I take it, I feel different and can feel it beating more forcefully....
