Verapamil in the management of hypertensive patients

Australian and New Zealand Journal of Medicine
G R LewisP J Bones


The hypotensive action of verapamil given orally was assessed in the outpatient management of patients with raised blood pressure, in a single blind study. Twenty-six hypertensive patients on no therapy, 14 on beta blockers and eight on methyldopa were more satisfactorily controlled when verapamil was substituted for the initial drug. There was a marked reduction in the number of side-effects, and the drug was given in many situations where beta blockade was contra-indicated.
