Jul 9, 2019 · Is it HCM? Need answers in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

Hello,
I have lived with HCM for over 40 years now. When I first was diagnosed with the disease, I was prescribed Propanolol (Inderal) – which is a Beta Blocker and helps control heart rhythm. I was on that drug for about 8 years until a new drug, Verapamil was released. For the past 35 years, I have been prescribed Verapamil – which is a Calcium Channel Blocker and relaxes blood vessels so blood can flow more freely and reduce the effort needed by the heart. More recently I have also been prescribed Metropolol, which is a different type of Beta Blocker that helps with chest pains.
I wish you the best.
