High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.
What happens if I miss a dose?
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it's close to your next scheduled dose, skip it and continue with your regular medication schedule.
What happens if I take too much?
Taking too much of your blood pressure medicine can be very dangerous. Signs of an overdose might include slow heart rate, low blood pressure and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar).
If you’ve taken too much Verapamil ER, call your medical provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
