verapamil difference between SR and ER

I am taking verapamil SR 240mg. A lot of drug plans only offer it as ER. What's the difference? ## There is no difference, they are both just abbreviations that denote it as being a time released formulation. ER= extended release SR= sustained release You may also see it denoted with the abbreviations: XR = extended release and CR = controlled release. However, as I said, they all mean the same thing. Verapamil is a calcium channel blocker used to treat hypertension, angina and other cardiovascular problems. Common side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Read more: Are there any questions or comments? ## There is a difference between verapamil ER and SR. One is taken once a day and the other is meant to be taken twice a day. That is what the pharmacis...

Chronic Paroxysmal Hemicrania

I have recently been diagnosed with Chronic Paroxysmal Hemicrania i am currently taking both difen and verapamil. Does anybody know whether certain foods can trigger these headaches? ## No, research hasn't shown any specific causes or triggers associated with these headaches. Some people who get migraines, sometimes have certain food triggers, but this has never been shown with these. My suggestion would be to just pay attention to what you eat and drink and see for yourself if something triggers them. Such triggers are usually unique to the person, anyway. Where I get headaches from beer, you may not and while chocolate doesn't bother me, it may trigger them in you. CPH is usually treated with the NSAIDs, like the Dicolfenac in the Difen and the calcium channel blockers, Verapa...

Verapamil Er - Capsule vs. Tablet

Pharmacy has changed my RX from a capsule to tablet (with approval from Dr.) Dosage is the same 240 and both are XR. Pharmacy says they can't get capsules any more, only tablets. Since the change-over (about 2 -3 months ago) my blood pressure has been inching back up and now soldily back in the "high blood pressure" readings. Doctor has temporarily increased my dosage of lisinopril (I take both) but wants my primary care to do a complete work up. Has anyone else had problems with tablet form not working? (Capsule worked for at least 2 years or more the change is only since switch to tablet.) My symptoms with uncontrolled high blood pressure include severe headaches and double vision. It is my top number (systolic?) that is increasing from 80s range to avg 150 and up. (I am f...

aprovil

drug ## Is aprovil a good drug for controlling high blood pressure? If so, how does compare too verapamil ## Aprovel contains the active ingredient Irbesartan, which is used to treat high blood pressure, stroke, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, stomach, pain, and hypotension. Verapamil is a different medication, but it is used to treat similar medical conditions. Overall, it really depends on what works best for the patient in question. How is this medication working for you?

Verapamil SA Versus ER

I started out on 40mgs Verapamil SA for High Blood Pressure and PSVT...It was not enough, increased to 120mgs ER once pr day...That worked longer.. But had to go up to Verapamil 240mgs. That was the magic dose...Did really well on that dose. Awhile back, I noted my PSVT seemed to be acting up more often and my BP raised up.....I just noticed on my Rx bottle that the V.A. Pharmacy started sending me the right dose. But, it was Verapamil 240mg SA (Instead of my usual 240mgs ER.)...Dr. didn't order the change. But, I have noticed I don't do as well on one 240mg SA as I do on the 240mgs ER.....(Beginning to wonder is SA is "short Acting?)....Again Dr. didn't order the change....Obviously, the ER is better for me. ## No, the SA actually stands for sustained action, so both it...

Verapamil, Metformin, Losartan, Xarelto and Lovastatin

I take one Verapamil SR 240 mg tablet per day. I've been taking it at lunchtime (at approx. 12-12:30) with food. Is this the best time of day to take it? I also take other prescribed meds: 2 Metformin, 1 Losartan, 1 Xarelto and 1 Lovastatin. Presently, I take Losartan in the early a.m.; Xarelto at 6:30p.m.; Metformin in the a.m. and p.m.; and Lovastatin at bedtime. I was taken off of Atenolol because of my low pulse. My main concern is the time of day to take the above meds because I do better on a schedule. ## It really depends on what works best for you, unless your doctors gives some reason that you should take them at others times. The FDA warns that you may experience side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, stomach pain, flatulence, and diarrhea....
