I have recently (2 mos ago) been diagnosed with Hemicrania Continua. The traditional treatment for this involves high doses of indomethacin which I had been using and controls the head pain but leaves me with constant nausea/vomiting. So I sought out further help. The new, more experienced neuro put me on Verapamil Er 120 and a steroid taper. I took the Verapamil last night and got very dizzy and felt like I was going to pass out. Went immediately to bed. I felt very weak,tired,dizzy all day. I am a RN and at 1 pm my BP was 100/52 after 80 mg of prednisone and coffee,still dizzy and tired. I called the dr office and explained this. The MA called back and said the DR said to stay on it. I am wondering is this a drug my body will build a tolerance too? If not, I do not think this drug or maybe this dose is for me. thank you for any help. I just want a normal life back.
