I am wondering if anyone has taken verapamil and if their experience has been similar to mine. Two months ago my new neurologist put me on a low-dose aspirin (to prevent stroke) and 80 mg of verapamil (I somehow left the office without finding out why verapamil–the main conversation was about Botox). Since I began taking aspirin and verapamil, I no longer have numbness on one side of my body. I’ve also had two very good months–just a few headache days, compared to before, when I had some migraine symptoms at least 50% of the time.
I’ve often felt overly optimistic when trying a new prescription–thinking, “This is the one!” only to have the migraines return to their previous level. These past two months have been my best two months in years.
Does anyone have any experience with verapamil and/or aspirin? Could it possibly be that this drug is actually helping me, and these two months have not been a fluke?
