Hello friends. Some of you may remember me as:
- the lady who went to prison for 4 months
- the lady getting better on 4 MAV drugs at once
- the lady who gave a TED Talk
Well 2 out of 3 of them are still true! Meds have changed
I did in fact get better on 4 MAV drugs. Well enough in fact that I got down to just one, and a TINY dose: Amitriptyline 15mg. But because I gained weight in prison (too many carbs, no access to fresh greens) I also went on propranolol 20mg 2x a day because my BP goes up with weight gain. But I’m having trouble losing weight the way I used to. And I need to get back down to normal and get my BP back to normal.
So… The purpose of this post is to see how people have done on Verapamil. I know the constipation issues - no problem for me since I always have the other problem. And I want to take Magnesium again.
So - how has Vera been for you? I’m super sensitive and take small doses of everything. What dose did you start on? Any issues with thinking and concentration? I’m working on a book so don’t want to get floozy.
And P.S. you CAN get better. I’m almost at 100% now.
