Verapamil hydrochloride is a medication licensed to treat various conditions of the heart and blood vessels, such as high blood pressure, chest pain, and irregular heart rhythms. The prescription drug works by relaxing the blood vessels to make it easier for the blood to flow through them. Verapamil comes in the form of a tablet and a capsule. The dosage of verapamil your healthcare provider prescribes will vary depending on several factors, such as the condition being treated, the particular form of verapamil being used, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you may be taking. Among the conditions you should let your healthcare provider know about prior to taking verapamil are liver and kidney disease, low blood pressure, and any allergies you may have.
