Re: Transdermal Verapamil

I'm on week 3 and showing some signs /results in my hands-the cords are getting softer & 1 of the deep dimples is lifting up a bit ...I would say for anyone who is just starting to get duputyrens i'm guessing it would do great.For someone like myself who has had it for many years .It takes some time & a lot of rubbing but is showing improvement in 3 weeks on hands & feet....I know of only this treatment as it is my 1st treatment + my ultrasound machine...

Re: Transdermal Verapamil

Does one need a prescription for this cream or can I go to the pharmacy and request it?

Seems some people here had some good results.

Thanks for the info.

Re: Transdermal Verapamil

I haven't used it myself but based on previous reports I would not expect much effect, see http://www.dupuytren-online.info/dupuytren_anecdotal.html "Verapamil is completely ineffective. The only thing it will reduce is your bank balance". Nevertheless, maybe still worth trying. Please report your results!

It is by perscription only. A good compounding pharmacy can make it. Mine costs $68 for a 2 month supply. I use a 10% compound and apply 2x/day.
As far as it being "completely ineffective", I beg to differ. While my feet results are much better ("dramatic" according to my podiatrist) than my hands, it has been used successfully by smart urologists (for puyronies disease) and podiatrists for many years. It beats surgery!

Re: Transdermal Verapamil

Yes it works!On week 4 and the cords in my hands are getting smaller & the doctor said they will pop...My feet are almost pain free & the size of nodules is 1/2 what they were a month ago....Take it from someone who has a bad case in both hands & feet....I rub it in very hard & 3 times a day -i want the stuff gone... Was told i could back down & use it may be once a week when the tissue is gone........

Re: Transdermal Verapamil

Hi sorefeet,

Thanks for posting your experience with Verapamil transdermal. My insurarnce just denied RT for DD and LD saying it's experimental/investigational and out of service area. My doc says appeals are a waste of time. US rad clinics are too expensive as RT will be all out of pocket for me. That leaves me Dr S in Germany which I'll start saving $$ towards.

In the meantime I've got a Rx for 15% Verapamil 10% Ketoprofen Gel to be filled by local compounding pharmacy.
Your hopeful post prompted me since at this point, N0/N1, I need to just STOP the progression.
Please keep posting and I will do the same.
Here's to anything that works....
Meg

wondering how it does on the hands...

Hi all

I am in Australia, 32 and have dc in both hands early stages
I've been having pain in both hands, it's developing quickly in my right hand
I went to local compounding chemist, they charged me 250 for 3 months supply
They advised the verapamil was hard to work with so went with a 10 percent verapamil mixed with practisil, and i report later but it's been only 3 days and I noticeably aren't getting those growth pains of the dc, so it's sided the pain already, I am noticeably a bit more cheerful that the pain is going

I was on a medium sized plan from dci previously with no positive affects at all

I'll keep you posted on my progress with the verapamil
I'm putting it on twice to three times daily
It's drying my skin out a bit but no other irritation
