Metaprolol vs. Verapamil
Glad to hear that. I was on Verapimil for 5-6 years but finally had to stop due to out of control gum swelling (a side effect). Was put on Metaprolol earlier this year, but now am experiencing severe joint pain throughout my body. Going to ask the doc soon for something different.
