verapamil is a great drug for bringing your ticker back to basics. the problem is when the heart beats too fast, it needs to be re-directed. think of it like a vitamin, or a cough drop or the birth control pill: if you don't take it everyday, your body isn't going to leave "you" per say and go find it. take it every day so your brain is happy too.
