Verapamil hydrochloride inhibits the influx of calcium ions through L-type calcium channels in the heart and vascular smooth muscle, leading to vasodilation and decreased myocardial contractility. This process reduces the workload on the heart and lowers blood pressure. It’s particularly effective in treating supraventricular tachycardia and is used off-label for migraine prevention.
