Verapamil belongs to a group of medicines called calcium channel blockers which interfere with the electrical signals in the heart muscle and blood vessels. It is used to manage high blood pressure (hypertension). It can be used alone or with other drugs for high blood pressure. Verapamil Hydrochloride tablets also help to manage and prevent angina as well as treat and prevent certain types of abnormal heartbeats.
