How long for Verapamil to wear off?

Hello Everyone,

I was on verapamil for about a month. The pill took away the migraine dizziness, but the side effects of headache and lightheadedness have become too much to handle. I’ve been off of it for 5 days now but still have the side effects. How long does it typically take for the side effects to wear off with this drug? Any insight would be greatly appreciated!


Seth – I was on it for about 2 weeks and it just made me dizzier. When I stopped it, I felt rough for about 3 days and I was back to baseline again.

I’m sure each medication is different. The last one I went off of, Effexor, took a good 3-4 weeks. I hope you get back to your “normal dizzy” soon!
