My Family Doctor prescribed 120mg SR Verapamil prevention

Customer Question

My Family Doctor prescribed 120mg SR Verapamil for migraine prevention and slight high blood pressure. Six hours after taking Verapamil I get a headache. My doctor wants to prescribe Losartan - I am concerned about some of the side effects I saw 1. Blindness 2. Hair loss
What info can you give me on this medication and its side effects?
Also, Pamelor 25 mg with increase to 75 mg was prescribed by my Neurologist for migraine prevention, I had to decrease back down to 25 mg as the 50 mg caused acid reflux.
Any recommendations on migraine prevention?
I tried Topamax and cannot take it.
Thank you
