My consultant cardiologist put me on prolonged release Verapamil 3 years ago when I had acute AF. Following a successful cardioversion I was told that I would have to take Verapamil for life. The product that I take is 180mg prolonged release from Univers. This was deemed the best medication for me as I have asthma. I felt rough when I took it initially but now my body accepts it apart from awful constipation. My GP said that in order to change the medication I would have to be closely monitored in hospital which did happen 3 years ago. The problem that I now have is that I am unable to find prolonged release Verapamil anywhere. This has been referred back to my doctor who is due back from holiday on Monday. I run out of my medication Friday next week and go to Namibia for 3 weeks a week later. I am really worried about this and hope that somebody with the same experience can help.
