A calcium antagonist vs a non-calcium antagonist hypertension treatment strategy for patients with coronary artery disease.

A comparison of verapamil and propranolol for the initial treatment of hypertension. Racial differences in response. We compared verapamil and propranolol hydrochloride for monotherapy of hypertension. Verapamil lowered blood pressure (BP) more effectively than propranolol in black and white patients. Verapamil was equally effective in blacks and whites, whereas propranolol was more effective in whites. Heart rate was reduced by 6.0 beats per minute by verapamil, and by 13.6 beats per minute (...) by propranolol. In blacks, verapamil lowered systolic BP 16.9 vs 8.1 mm Hg for propranolol; verapamil reduced diastolic BP 12.8 vs 8.6 mm Hg for propranolol. In whites, verapamil lowered systolic BP 19.0 vs 12.7 mm Hg for propranolol; verapamil reduced diastolic BP 16.7 vs 12.3 mm Hg for propranolol. Increases in systolic BP were observed in 22% and 3.4% of patients receiving propranolol and verapamil, respectively. The PR interval was increased from 163.5 to 174.9 ms for verapamil vs 160.3 to 164.4 ms

Verapamil prophylaxis of migraine. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study. We undertook a double-blind, placebo-controlled study to determine the effectiveness of verapamil hydrochloride for the prophylaxis of migraine. Twelve patients were given either verapamil hydrochloride, 80 mg four times daily, or placebo in random order during two consecutive three-month periods. Migraine frequency, severity, and duration were quantified by daily logs and monthly questionnaires. Ten of the 12 patients (...) had fewer migraines during verapamil therapy. Migraine frequency decreased from 6.7 to 3.8 migraines per patient per month, for a mean decrease of 49%. Headache unit index fell from an average of 0.61 to 0.44. We conclude that verapamil is effective in the prophylaxis of migraine and that verapamil might be considered one alternative in the development of a regimen for the prophylaxis of migraine.
A controlled trial of verapamil for Prinzmetal's variant angina. To assess the efficacy and safety of verapamil in variant angina pectoris, we entered 16 patients in a double-blind, randomized trial of nine months, duration. During treatment with verapamil, the frequency of angina fell substantially (12.6 +/- 25.9 chest pains per week with placebo, 1.7 +/- 2.8 pains per week with verapamil, mean +/- S.D.; P less than 0.01), as did the use of nitroglycerin tablets (14.4 +/- 34.4 tablets per week (...) with placebo, 2.1 +/- 3.3 tablets per week with verapamil; P less than 0.05). The number of hospitalizations for clinical instability was significantly lower with verapamil (P less than 0.01). The number of episodes of transient ST-segment deviation during treatment with verapamil was reduced (33.1 +/- 39.3 ST-segment deviations per week with placebo, 7.7 +/- 11.7 deviations per week with verapamil; P less than 0.01). Verapamil caused no side effects forcing a reduction in dosage or a discontinuation. We
Verapamil in chronic stable angina. A controlled study with computerized multistage treadmill exercise. The efficacy of verapamil (360 mg daily) in the treatment of patients with chronic stable angina pectoris was compared with placebo. 28 patients were studied in a placebo-controlled double-blind crossover trial of 2 weeks each and afterwards on long-term verapamil. Exercise tests were performed at the end f the placebo period, and after 2 weeks and 4 weeks on verapamil. On placebo, angina (...) developed in all 28 patients during treadmill tests; the mean exercise time was 6.6 min (SEM +/- 0.5 min). The mean exercise time increased to 9.2 (+/- 0.8) min at 2 weeks, and 11.2 (+/- 0.8) min at 4 weeks on verapamil. In 15 and 20 patients out of the 28 angina did not develop during treadmill exercise at 2 and 4 weeks respectively. Trinitrin consumption also decreased. There was a significant improvement in ST-segment changes. Constipation (in 7 patients) and reversible PR-interval prolongation (in 2
