26 Jul 2010 As stated above, it does seem to help with my blood pressure, but I seem to be more irritated than I was before I originally started the medication. It is worth putting up with for the benefit of the medication though.

25 Aug 2009 Verapamil Hydrochloride really helped with my high blood pressure, but after a while the side effects got to be too much and I had to stop taking it after almost a year.
