 4  premature ventricular beats nil side effects before taking Isoptin I was experiencing frequent disturbing symptoms of the premature ventricular beats (anxiety, lightheadedness) which resulted in my going to the outpatient department of my local hospital on quite a few occasions. Since being on Isoptin SR 120mm once per day for the last six years the symptoms have virtually disappeared. M 64 6 years

CALAN SR  (VERAPAMIL HYDROCHLORIDE):  Verapamil is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Verapamil belongs to a class of drugs known as calcium channel blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. Verapamil may also lower your heart rate.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
