Verapamil Use Lowers Glucose in Diabetes Shows Study

Verapamil, a calcium channel blocker is used to treat hypertension, angina pectoris, and cardiac arrhythmia. It is also effective against cluster headaches & prevents migraine, though one of the side-effects is headaches. Verapamil is also used intra-arterially while treating cerebral vasospasm. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in March 1982, Verapamil is available on InternationalDrugMart.com, for a much cheaper price than its branded counterpart.

In a recent study, patients who were administered Verapamil, along with insulin had fasting serum glucose levels that were 24 mg/dL lower than those who were not administered the drug. One group of patients who took only calcium channel blockers showed a serum glucose level decrease of 5mg/dL, compared to those who did not. Compared to those who didn’t use calcium blocker, patients on verapamil had an average 10mg/dL lower serum glucose. The current study by Dr Yulia Khodneva, from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, is the first of several clinical trials to confirm these results. This research is based on previous findings by the School of Medicine that using verapamil on mice completely reversed diabetes.
