I've had this too, and I also used Procardia (nifedipine) gelcaps. I took them by biting them in half and swallowing them so the calcium channel blocker would work fast. I tried to do this only under a doctor's care (I usually went to the university health centre, although they weren't very competent there!).

I've heard of using beta blockers (like propranolol) but I've read that this can backfire and make the hypertension worse (because beta blockers cause vasoconstriction, although they also decrease cardiac output).
