is there an alternative drug to verapamil due to constipation now and again?
I have no symptoms from HCM and my blood pressure is under control 136/77.
Do i still need to take this verapamil even though i do not suffer from any symptoms ?
am currently on 240mg verapamil daily and bendroflumeathiazide 2.5mg daily
Just a couple of other questions i have.
i have been aware of my own heartbeat on two or three occasions. This is extremely rare when i have been laid in bed. you can feel a heartbeat which lasts for about 30 secs but you can hardly feel it, but i am aware of something there. Similar feeling i suppose when you take your pulse but it is coming from your heart area.
did not feel like a palpitation but a normal heart rate, maybe slightly faster but not significantly so. you could count the beats. i did not have any symptoms. On other rare occasions i have heard my heartbeat in my ear. Have had also rare occasions of tingling in my hands and felt as though my hand was swelling up. Other than laying in bed which could cause it what else could it be ? I seem to only get symptoms when in bed
