Verapamil hydrochloride is a heart drug. A calcium channel blocker.
It was designed to relax the heart muscles and the blood vessels.
Specifically, it is used to treat high blood pressure, angina, and certain heart rhythm disorders.
This drug was never designed for Peyronies Disease. But it is used for that purpose as well as it’s designed use: heart disease.
Verapamil hydrochloride has been found mildly effective in reducing the pain and curvature associated with Peyronies Disease.
But, it has never been found really effective in straightening a bent or curved penis due to Peyronies.
In fact it has been found, at best, to be only about 30% effective.
That means it may stop the pain from your bent penis, but it won’t really straighten it out effectively.
For penis curvature, it is usually administered by injection.
If you took it orally, you would need 50 to 100 times the safe level. So, for this type of scar/plaque problem it is injected directly into the scar or plaque in your penis.
There is also a topical gel available.
The gel is only available by prescription.
It seems to be as effective as the injection for reducing the pain of severe Peyronies Disease. And, the gel does not have the invasive scarring effect of injections that may lead to further bending later.
It is, however, not FDA approved.
The gel form has shown to give some relief of the condition. Primarily pain relief. But, has not shown to be effective in actually allowing erections to become straight again.
And, you can still have all the unpleasant side effects from the gel.
We somehow want to believe that drugs will cure everything right away.
Sometimes they can be very ineffective and have terrible side effects.
And, often there are methods that are far better than drugs for correcting some conditions.
This applies to a bent or curved penis.
The method that had been clinically proven to be superior to anything else for Safety and Effectiveness in straightening a curved penis is correct penis traction.
Verapamil hydrochloride was studied in a long term single blind test by doctors J. Rehman, A. Benet and A. Melma.
They reported on a group of patients who were given injections every week for a period of 6 months.
57% had a decrease in plaque. ED was improved in 47%. 28% had a bit less curvature.
They concluded that it works best in men with less than 30% curvature.
30% is a small enough curvature that it usually is not even worth bothering with because it does not interfere with sexual intercourse.
They also stated not all patients will respond to these treatments.

Are there possible side effects from using these injections or the topically applied gel?
Here’s a dandy list of what you may experience if you use it:
This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur.
Now, considering the fact that
you do not need Verapamil
to straighten a bent or curved penis,
when you consider the fact that you can fix your curved penis Safely, Effectively and Easily without it, do you still “want to try” it??
Here is a link to what patients have said about withdraw symptoms from this substance on the website treato.co.
I think the title of this article sums up the story here:
Why use Verapamil Hydrochloride when you don’t need it?
- Why use it when it has shown to be not really effective for penis straightening?
- Why risk unnecessary side effects that you need not risk?
Actually, none of the current drugs have been found more than 30% effective in straightening a bent or curved penis caused by Peyronies Disease.
The clinically proven
- Most Effective
method for straightening this type of bent penis, medically endorsed and recommended in 29 countries worldwide, has been proven to be correct penis traction.
If you know me at all, you know that I believe you should save the drugs for when they are absolutely necessary.
Since Verapamil is not necessary to correct a penis curvature,
Since it comes with many possible unpleasant side effects,
And, since it is not recognized as being highly effective for straightening penis curvature,
Does it make any sense to use it for your curved penis?
