Storyboard Text

  • Hello Ms. Curo, My name is Dustan.  Dr. Menchaca has prescribed Verapamil for your high blood pressure.
  • It's a calcium channel blocker that inhibits calcium influx across the cardiac/smooth muscle cellsnand dilates the  cornary arteries
  • How do I take this medication?
  • Take a single dose of 240mg ER tab with breakfast without crushing or chewing it and avoid grapefruit. If you experience irregular heartbeats, a rash, swelling of arms and legs, dizziness, nausea,  or severe headache contact your  doctor. Do not stop medication without calling your Doctor first.
  • IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW!!!
  • Yes, do not take with St. John's Wart,  alcohol, and beta blockers as they can alter the effects of the medication. 
  • Thank you for taking your time to explain this thoroughly to me.  I guess that means no wine for me. If I have any concerns I will contact you.
