Effect of sustained-release Verapamil on the morning systemic arterial pressure surge during daily activity in patients with systemic hypertension.


In a placebo-controlled study of 13 subjects with systemic hypertension, sustained-release verapamil reduced the morning surge in systolic pressure by 10.2 mm Hg (p = 0.04), diastolic pressure by 11.1 mm Hg (p = 0.008), and heart rate by 3.3 beats/min (p = 0.17). Blunting of the morning hemodynamic surge may be a mechanism by which verapamil could reduce… (More)
